I am getting ready to rework my micro skiff. I have a Bateau FS18 that currently does not have a whole lot of electronics on it. The things I am installing are:

Atlas Micro Jacker
Bennett Trim Tabs
Navigation Lights
Micro Power Pole
Possible Fish Finder / Chart Plotter

I have a good understanding on getting everything wired up to the battery. My question is, does anybody make a switch panel that I can incorporate all these separate switch arrangements / functions into one panel? I would need three rocker switches that operate the up and down functions of the tabs and jack plate and then a handful more with just on and off functions. I am sure I can probably fabricate something but it would be a whole easier if I can find an existing panel that you can customize.

Any thoughts are appreciated.

Thanks,

Just Get an AMarine or DC Distribution rocker switch panel off Amazon.

They have various sizes (switch holes) and some with chargers. (like mine below)

I've rigged a few boats with these. You can pull the switches that come with them out and replace with Momentary On/Off/On reversing switches for your tabs and jack plate.

I didn't like the white stripe on mine, so I pulled all the switches and painted it with some black epoxy paint. Here's one custom panel I did ...added a blue indicator light for my charging system.
