  • New Switch Panel

    I need to get a new switch panel that i plan mounting on the console next to the gps and all instead of the lower factory position and have it all flush mount. there was a guy on here that made them but his website is down. Where is everyone getting theres at now? Just a horizontal bar with 8 or 9 rocker switches and maybe a trim tab switch too. Flush mounted in starboard....any suggestions?

    thanks

    Take a look at Blueseas website if you don't customs. There are few other vendors that make custom backlite switch panels

      These guys were great. I built the door but they provided the panels and they were fast, less than a week to my door.

              if you want trim tab switch made into the panel would need to get custom I think? I always liked my tab switches stand alone and kind of higher then the switch panel, but that's just personal preference

                I actually saw on bennetts website a nice updated switch set with leds to show what level the trim tabs are at. Its just a idea while im making a new dash piece.

                I think i have someone local cutting a panel out for me but either way i need to order rocker switches. I forgot how expensive these are. Im looking to get labeled led ones. Anyone have a good sight to order from? Hard to tell if im getting the name brand china ones or no name china ones.

                  New Wire will send you the switches and the custom covers separately. I use the Contura V style because as we travel the Bahamas if a switch fails you can find them there and just swap the switch covers. They will also print the cover with whatever label you like.

                    If you plan on making a panel of your own....check out Rocker Switch Pros...https://rockerswitchpros.com/

                    I've used their switch bodies with custom etched switch actuators...very pleased with their customer service, products and prices.

                    Good day!...Eric

                        Thanks D2x3

                        I hate clutter and logos. We finished the boat on a Monday and were scheduled to be in the Bahamas on Wednesday last July. We could not at that time get the motors to communicate via NEMA2000 so I had to against all my OCD issues cut the RPM gauges into the console. I have put a Garmin 741 in the spot between the twin 7610 units and put the Yamaha gauges back inside the console with the others and use them as a back up if the NEMA goes down.



                        You can see in this pic where the two RPM displays are missing so we could make the crossing. They are back where they belong now.[]

                          I think im going to just get everything from newwiremarine. They have a pretty fair price on the switches and from what i read a good customer service incase i have any problems. 9 rocker switches and 9 circuit breakers on a cut out panel comes to around 170. For another 130 they'll fully wire and heat shrink all the connections with a 4ft wire lead. Ill probably just end up wiring it myself but its a nice option to have.

                          This is my dash layout im planning on but the layout will probably change.
