Lifepo4 and led acid hybrid system in TechTalk Posted December 4 7 hours ago, CarpeDiem said: Sorry IT. The citations are for the Maritime Act, specifically rule 40. Rule 40 does not apply to pleasure craft. It applies to commercial craft in survey. If you can show me a citation that applies to pleasure craft I will get off my soap box. CD for me, the Electrical inspector I use says the 2014 version is the current one. The NZ Govt Website says it is the current one. I linked to the Govt website that shows this. Here is the screenshot. It shows the 2008 standard as superseded. That is sufficient for me. If you wish to disagree, you of course are free to do so. Potentially, IMO, you could have to do so in court. The "connectable installation" section is not present in this version. So ALL boats must comply, except as excluded (small boats with only Alts/Magneto's and lights, no real electrical systems) Again, the standards are not retrospective - if your boat has non compliant systems, that's ok, but anything new must comply. This is also the opinion of the local electrical inspector here.
