FAQ’s

Got questions? We’d love to hear from you. Here are a few commonly asked questions we have been asked.

What standards apply to boat wiring?

There are two standards that apply to the wiring within boats in the United States. The first is the ABYC standards and then the Code for Federal Regulations (CFR) regulations. ABYC standards are voluntary, while the CFR standards are mandatory. The standards we follow for ABYC include the CFR standards, therefore all of the work we do is to the highest quality standards as required.

Why is circuit protection important in boats?

Circuit protection is essential in boats to prevent electrical fires and damage to equipment. Circuit protection devices such as fuses and circuit breakers are used to limit the amount of current flowing through electrical circuits, shutting off power in the event of a short circuit or overload. These devices help protect the boat’s electrical system from damage and reduce the risk of electrical hazards.

How do I inspect my shore power connection cord?

Inspecting your shore power connection cord for a boat is an important safety measure to ensure the electrical system of your boat is working correctly. To inspect the cord, start by checking for any visible damage, including cracks, cuts, or abrasions. Look for discoloration or signs of overheating on the plug and receptacle. Make sure the cord is securely connected and that the grounding wire is intact. Regularly inspecting your shore power connection cord is a simple but effective way to ensure the safety and reliability of your boat’s electrical system.

Why should I hire somebody to repair my boat's wiring?

Hiring a marine electrician for boat electrical repairs is essential for ensuring the safety and reliability of your boat’s electrical system. Marine electricians have the knowledge, training, and experience to identify and diagnose electrical problems, as well as repair or replace faulty components to ensure the system is working correctly. Attempting to perform electrical repairs yourself without the proper training and equipment can be dangerous and may cause more extensive damage to your boat’s electrical system.
