Another crazy thought I had... why not hard wire a small electric air compressor in my boat? It would make filling up tubes so much faster and easier. Boating with small kids means tubes are part of the deal (please no tube haters... stay on topic).

So here's my idea.

1) Buy a small 12V air compressor capable of 150psi. Something like the one below...

2) Mount it inside one of the lockers so it's out of site (up high on the outer wall of one of the lockers).

3) Hardwire it... I have no idea how this works. Couldn't the standard 12V wire that normally goes to a cigarette lighter be modified and hardwired to either the battery or fuse panel? What about tying into some other nearby electrical source? People hardwire radar detectors in their cars all the time. Isn't this the same concept. Help!


Has anybody attempted anything remotely similar?

Does anybody know how hard it would be to hardwire?
