The On-Board guide is the boat equivalent of the On-Site guide - and similarly priced.

What is needed is the boat equivalent of the 'On-Site Guide' which is
a brilliant little guide with just about everything you actually need
to know when house wiring.

I’ve been able to download the Wiring Matters summary Al refers to, as a PDF, attached.

(It may appear twice - I find it hard to attach files on an iPhone 😜)

2023 The Institution of Engineering and Technology. The Institution of Engineering and Technology is registered as a Charity in England & Wales (no 211014) and Scotland (no SC038698)

appears they are a registered charity so not sure they get taxpayer funding and seems their academy is closing.

Balliol - for the record I managed to cut and paste this ( thought I'd done it before) using old android tablet so if this works it can work!

Thank you Andy.

Interesting title, UK inland waters and surrounding.....

I look forward to reading a copy, will there be one in the Library?

Electrical Safety on Small Craft was created by Andy Soper
After a long gestation the Institute of Electrical Engineers - now the Institute of Engineering and Technology (IET) have produced guidance for
Electrical safety for Small Craft. 

The original audience was professional installers and boat builders. They invited me to contribute and I have now ensured that 'electrically skilled small craft owners' have been included in the intended audience.

Please note that this is 'guidance' but that their 17th Edition Wiring Regs for UK became recognised as the standard for UK.

I do commend the advice included in the Guide which is available at  shop.theiet.org/electrical-safety-for-small-craft .

It covers safety standards for Generators / Solar/ Batteries / Wiring / Shore Power / Propulsion etc.

Highly recommended for the DIY installer and the owner who wants to know the specifcation to require of their installer.
