Electrical completed and tested

I got the electrical system all assembled and tested. I put waterproof LED strip lights on the cuddy ceiling for reading and night lights. They take very little energy and shouldn't drain the battery.

Here's a shot up to the back of the circuit panel. The bus bar is attached to the mast box and has wires leading to the back of the circuit breaker box.

I tested the motor setup and that works just like it should.

The only electrical I have to do now is to figure out how to wire up a mast light and a solar charger for the battery. 

Finally, I mounted a hand pump under the seat for emergencies.
