    Having a difference of opinion with a colleague on how to do/layout an electrical load analysis for a vessel. I'm looking for a good book or reference to be able to use as a standard. Not an electrical guy but I seem to be doing more of it every day.......

    Just out of curiosity, are you starting from scratch? What do you mean by lay out an electrical load analysis? You mean how to figure power req. based on loads? I'm sort of pondering all that myself on my houseboat project. I have the book by John C. Payne "Understanding Boat Wiring."
    but I still don't know the basic layout. Incredible that you had no responses....have you found the answer yet?
