Boatowner's Illustrated Electrical Handbook
The care of your boat's electrical systems do not necessarily have to be costly or intimidating. Not if you have Boatowner's Illustrated Electrical Handbook, a library of information about DC wiring, AC wiring, solar, wind and other operations, as well as DIY projects, that's going to make keeping your boat running smoothly easier while making you a more self-sufficient owner.
This illustrated guide for your boat's electrical systems will walk you through the basics of circuitry and gradually work its way to simplifying working on electrical filters and VHF radios. In between, you'll get thorough and easy-to-follow breakdowns on inverters and generators, load calculations, anode sizing, analog and digital test instruments (and how to compare the two for your needs), and conductor installation. Get detailed theories behind choosing, replacing and maintaining batteries, understanding passive circuit components and wind power. There's even a chapter on unique, fun, do-it-yourself projects.
Boatowner's Illustrated Electrical Handbook complements its text with hundreds of black and white illustrations that are going to make grasping these concepts easier. In no time at all, you are going to see that even the most complex procedures such as harnessing electrical noise and determining cost per kilowatt-hour are manageable if you know how to approach the task.
It doesn't matter if you sail professionally or simply enjoy getting away from congested highways and cruising the waters, once you see its value, this handbook on boats and their electrical systems will always be at your side. Boatowner's Illustrated Electrical Handbook contains everything you're going to need to completely understand, manage, repair and upgrade your boat's AC and DC electrical systems, turning you into a bonafide, roll-up-those-sleeves boat fixer-upper!
