Making future wiring easier


Be the first to comment

What is the issue?
Running wires throughout a vessel is a challenge. The individual paths have to be routed one by one through bulkheads and around multiple objects.

Why address this?
Unexpected new pieces of electronic equipment constantly emerge to make the sailing life easier and more pleasurable. It makes sense to facilitate the future implementation of unexpected technologies or the replacement of current systems in different layouts.

How to address this?
Plan for unexpected future electrical appliances by implementing wiring conduits throughout the vessel.
Plastic conduits can cater for current wiring arrangements and facilitate those of the future. Plastic domestic waste pipes make excellent conduits.
