Often the coating of our ships becomes damaged. Sometimes due to the revages of time when rust is growing below the painting, sometimes fenders had been at the wrong position when landing. These small "Remples" do often remove so much from the boat's coating, that a simple paint over would leave ugly scars on the surface. In addition, steel boats have to be protected by applying a primer at first.
What are the rules for designing the cross-section of power supply wires?
The proper sizing of the wires and cables for the DC power supply on our boats is not an occult science. By knowing some basic rules of electrical engineering, every skipper himself can calculate the right cross-sections for connecting wire and cables.
