Book Description:

This book is an illustrated, project-specific manual designed to provide basic information--and confidence--to the uninformed powerboater (or personal watercraft owner) who wants to do his or her own electrical repairs. Basic theory will be complemented by a problem-solution format that provides direct step-by-step suggestions for repairs and ad-ons.

From the Back Cover:

Frustrated by the high cost of basic electrical work but nervous about tackling such projects yourself? Ed Sherman wrote and teaches the American Boat & Yacht Council's certification program for electrical technicians. Now he's written this heavily illustrated, project-specific manual--the next best thing to having an electrician looking over your shoulder, and a lot cheaper!

Basic theory is combined with a problem-solution format that provides step-by-step directions for repairs and add-ons. From installing a new cabin light, CD player and speaker, fishfinder, or VHF radio, to tracing a faulty ignition circuit, it's all you need to maintain your boat's basic electrical systems. Learn to

  • Draw up a wiring diagram for your boat
  • Locate and identify the wiring and circuit components
  • Select and use a multimeter
  • Choose and maintain battery and marine ignition systems
