Outboard/Inboard/IO - DC Only: This DC system is circuit breaker based and contains the wiring for a system that is useful for multiple day cruising with a complete equipment package for open boats up to 23 feet LOA. Please choose this option from the drop-down above.
Plans show all wiring sizes and circuit protection values. All of the equipment shown in the plans have all required specifications listed if you do not want to purchase the exact equipment specified. The equipment in the plans is chosen as the most likely found and desired by the owner of a boat in the size class of the plan set. Expansion is provided for in the plans for extra equipment without the worry of overloading your system.
Full schematic is broken down into smaller parts so you can better understand how it's all connected. Suggested wiring panel layout is provided. There is also some educational material to help you understand proper wiring techniques and multiple notes on the schematics point out important features and items you need to be aware of. All schematics are CAD generated. All other documentation is computer documented so all information is easy to read.
All plans are sent electronically in PDF format for instant download after ordering. The link to the PDF will be provided in the confirmation email sent right after you place your order. If you don't get it right away, please email us.
Feedback from a Glen-L Wildcat builder:
"I'm very pleased to report that my experience working with Mr. Scott has been extremely satisfactory and has resulted in very detailed and clear schematics that I am in the process of executing. I wholeheartedly recommend him to anyone wanting to wire their boat correctly." Rick Moore
Note: A simple DC system is a minimal system you might use in a boat under 20 feet or a very simple power boat with only very minimal equipment such as a dayboat with no overnight capability. The power distribution will use a small fuseblock instead of a circuit breaker based panel. It will contain navigation lights (which may be an option for the boat), a bilge pump and some capability for engine instruments and a radio. The regular DC system is circuit breaker based and contains the wiring for a system that is useful for multiple day cruising with a complete equipment package.
