Converting a European 220V Boat to 110V – Nick, on Jul 31, 2015 asked:

In your many articles – have you ever written about converting a European boat, in this case an Elan 434, from 200 volts to 110 volts? If not, briefly what would be your best/simplest/cheapest solution?

I unfortunately never have.

There is no quick way as all the wiring is one size too small, as you half the voltage, the amperage doubles, hence the wiring size needs to double as well. It’s a complete re-wire.
