Description

Starting with the atom and ending with the laptop, "Boating Electrics Made Easy" is a complete introduction to the sometimes mystifying tangle of wires known as a boat's electrical system. Whether you're a weekend power boater or a long-term cruising sailor, a thorough understanding of a boat's electrical system is almost as crucial as a life jacket. Neglected, an electrical system wil fail to start a motor or power a running light, and might even cause a fire. In simple step-by-step chapters, Jack Balmer explains how to: protect against lightning; set up a switchboard; choose batteries; wire instruments; install radar and GPS; install inverters for running AC appliances; and much more. In the economical, clear language of the true expert, Balmer unravels complicated concepts like capacitance and impedance, and gives clear suggestions for safe, efficient installation of every variety of device. "Boating Electrics Made Easy" is a book every boater should want and need on board.show more
