SOCKETS & SWITCHES ON
CANAL BOATS & NARROWBOATS



You've got to be able to plug in your appliances and turn the lights on your canal boat on and off.

There are ratings to consider when specifying sockets and switches, so work out your electrical loads and rate the units accordingly. Canal boat fires are not funny!

With a correctly installed and protected AC system, it is perfectly acceptable practise to use sockets and switches designed for common household use. Electrical factors, on-line suppliers and DIY stores are a good source. The only restriction is your imagination.

With reference to 12VDC, it is important to make sure that the fitting is correctly rated for the amp you intend to push through it. For example, many accessory sockets are rated a 10amps but a bit of searching around will find units rated up to 15amps.

It’s worth noting here that if you intend dimming LED lighting, make sure the LED’s are compatible and the dimmer is suitable.
