Having gone to the trouble of re-wiring most of the boat, it only seemed proper to replace the switch panel particularly as I had separated many of the circuits which were previously connected without switching to antiquated bakerlite fuse boxes.

I designed the panel using Adobe Illustrator and had a local signmaker and engraver cut the panel from 6mm anodised aluminium panel. It was then just a matter or wiring up. The layout was quite tricky to get right as there were many more switches than the original Freeman panel. This also meant moving the tacho to one side rather than keeping it central.
