Nice job!

How did you secure the switch box to the bulkhead? I'm going to fit a depth gauge and wind gauge to the outside of where your switch box is. I might be able to route the wires from the gauges into a similar box to keep things neat and to hide the holes where the gauges screw to the bulkhead.

Thanks, Dave
The box has a flat panel at the back so I simply used a couple of the bolts that came through the bulkhead already - the ones that hold the outside pockets on - although one is used to hold a Tacktic electronic compass thingy mounting.
(I already have an antique compass in a beautifully made mahogany box that I can use instead of that particular piece of modern frippery - I would rather sail Nor' by Nor'east than gawp at a meaningless digital display ;)
