Your boat's electrical system can be overwhelming. If you are not sure where to start, or if you would like to learn more about your electrical systems, book an Electrical Audit with PYS. One of our ABYC-trained technicians will meet you at your boat and spend an hour and a half reviewing your battery setup, main connections wiring, charger, alternator, DC switching and fusing. You will receive a full written report, which will include recommendations to ensure your boat is safe, as well as suggestions for future improvements.

PT38 Trawler - "Cerulean Sea"

I’m very pleased with the work PYS did on my boat. A few problems arose after they completed the installation—but not really a result of what they did—and even though they spent hours on troubleshooting, they refused any additional payment.

I feel a lot more comfortable with the AC-DC electrical system after PYS upgraded it, I'm confident enough that if there's a problem, I can get to the bottom of it.

Electrical Audit Q&A's

Hi there, I was at the boat show last year and saw advertising for the electrical audit. I am buying a sailboat and would like an electrical survey. Will the electrical audit function as a survey to identify the deficiencies and recommended repairs? Also, are these services offered in Nanaimo?

Hi Jeff, I attended the Boat Maintenance Course with Norvan last spring and really enjoyed your talk. Thank you for that. I am doing some minor AC upgrades on our Tolly 37. I am replacing some old wiring with new, tinned wire (12ga). I want to insert the wires into the back of a GFCI. Is it OK to solder the ends of the wires?

On a sailboat with both a start battery and house battery that is charged by the engine alternator, why do you not overcharge the start battery if the house battery is discharged and the alternator is putting out high charging due to the low house battery?
