'A favourite reference book for basic electrics on boats... everything the average yachtsman needs to know' Kelvin Hughes

From the Back Cover:

A How-To Classic

The 12-Volt Bible for Boats is a complete introduction to the 12-volt electrical systems used on small boats to power everything from reading lights to bilge pumps. Written for boaters who are not skilled electricians, it clearly explains how 12-volt systems work and how to install, maintain, and troubleshoot them.

This second edition has been thoroughly updated to include the latest on marine batteries--including AGM and gel-cell batteries, multistage chargers, inverters, new wiring conventions, alternative energy sources, and modern test gear.

"A nuts-and-bolts primer for boatowners."--Cruising World

"Every boat with a 12-volt system needs this book on board."--Atlanta-Journal Constitution

"A gentle journey through the complexities of electrical circuitry."--Small Boat Journal

"This bible is as basic to boat electrical systems as the 10 commandments are to moral behaivor. It does not get any more fundamental than this."--Dockside NW
