Put it in a harsh salt water or fresh water environment, where a vessel’s wiring and components are subjected to more concentrated abuse in one season than your family car would experience in five years, and it’s easy to realize that small electrical problems can get out of hand very quickly. Safety onboard starts with a reliable DC electrical system that is installed and designed with the proper high quality wiring, components and connections to fulfill all of your intended DC tasks. If you’re tempted to take shortcuts when wiring your boat, don’t, as these types of cost-cutting measures can come back to bite you at the worst possible moments, potentially compromising the safety of your boat and crew. So, whether you ply fresh water lakes, back bays, coastal areas or make long distance blue water runs to the edge of the continental shelf, Marinco® offers a wide selection of high quality, low voltage DC electrical products designed specifically for the harsh marine environment. Now you can spend more time enjoying your boating experience and less time dealing with unwanted electrical hassles.
