    Default Need idea for ballast switches

    I have s 2007 Supra Sunsport 22'.

    I'm in the final stages of upgrading ballast pumps to Johnsons.

    My 3-ballast switches are located below the throttle. About knee-level. Last summer, when I had the sprinkler-value system and other people driving the boat, every once in a while the driver would 'bump' the switches ON. Easy to do with your knee.

    My fear this year, if someone bumps the the switches with the Johhnson pumps, I will start buring out impellers.

    I know the long-term I may have to move the switches. I think on the more recent models they moved them up. The brand new models have timers.

    Does anyone know of a plastic cover anyone makes for a 3-rocker switch panel?
    Other ideas?

    One member hear made a dash switch that powered the whole panel of ballast switches. Kinda like the stereo master switch.

    Thanks. I posted the question on the Supra Board and got the same answer.

    I googled the .net, not finding much on the major boat part sites.

    For this year, I might try to build something. Then thinking about moving it later.
    I can wire a new set of 3 switches above/in-front of the throttle and leave the original switches as is.
