120/AC to port side outlets?

I'm pretty sure that I've lost my mind, but I don't have any power to any outlets on the port side. From the bow to stern (head, dinette, forward galley, and aft galley) - nothing.

Could there be a secondary breaker hidden somewhere that protects the port side? I've gone of the schematics and thrown the multi-meter everywhere I have access. No dice... Any ideas?

Mine has a GFCI breaker on the port side outlet in the galley; all portside outlets are downstream of that outlet, so if it trips, they'll all be off. There is another GFCI on the outlet above the electric panel, protecting all of the starboard outlets. You might want to check and see if yours is similar.

So - I wasn't crazy. The PO had installed all sorts of great upgrades for his extended (10 year) cruising in Mexico. One was the hefty Xantrex. He had split off the starboard and port 120v into two separate circuits - I'm assuming to avoid unnecessary errant drainage when the inverter was needed...

Found the switch under the sink - just aft of the inverter... All is right with the world again, as my first mate can make her microwave popcorn...
