Hello

We are new to this forum. We are about halfway through building the Glen L Jubilee houseboat. Can anyone recommend a good reference source for wiring this boat? The Glen L plans so far have been top notch but do not include wiring our boat. Thanks!

Pam and Tom Drumm

Hi Pam and Tom,

I can't recommend any references for the boat specifically but Nigel Calder has a book called "Boatowner's Mechanical And Electrical Manual" that is an excellent reference for building a wiring system. There are certainly other good references as well, but I am unfamiliar with them.


Ray Macke might also chime in here. He built his True Grit with quite a bit of electrical.

Good luck.

Try this USCG publication P16761.3 "Safety Standards for Backyard Boat Builders". Can also be found on the net in .pdf form but I do not have the URL.
