Hi Julian

Hi Julian

I'm midway through tons of upgrades on our X
I've installed a new leisure battery under the front dinette seat (snug to the boat centre line)
I've left our original starter battery and swapped all the lights to the new battery (so it only does the starting job)
I've wired in new control panels, strip lights, fm/dab radio & speakers, bilge pumps & usb charge points
I've got a 50w solar pv panel mounted on the rear starboard stanchion

From having no experience of boats I've learned loads from the Internet, this forum & a guy at the marina we used towards the end of last season in Keswick
