Electrifying my Seascape 18 – Part 2: Power Supply

Please find the scheme how I supplied my Seascape 18 with electrical power.

Main goal was to provide the Seascape with power independently from a fixed power grid installation and to have enough battery storage to supply the attached devices with power during one sailing day.

Scheme of the power-supply

Comments on some of the components I used:

  • The Raymarine Racemaster and the Wind Transducer have own solar cells and do not need any external power supply.
  • The battery Longex 12LCP-36 is mounted in the front tank under the front berth (I have a whole for an  inspection lid built into the tank where it just fits through if I take out the inspectin lid).
  • The NASA Supernova Combi Anchor / Top Light is a brilliant device! It is LED-based, has both the white Anchor Light as well as the three-coloured position light and can be supplied with power by a single cable (the included switch switches not only power on and off but can also change the polarity which chooses the respective colour scheme).
