Description: This book, first published in 1973, found a ready audience in the boatkeeper who enjoys doing his own maintenance. The continuing demand for the work has been gratifying, but the continuing advances in technology during the past years has made it necessary to re-issue it in an up-dated version.
It is still a book about pleasure boat electricity, the circuits carrying it from its source, and those distributing it throughout the boat. Both alternating and direct current circuits are covered in a way that attempts to help the yachtsman understand and care for his boat's electrical systems. To this purpose, circuits are first described, then workable approaches to maintenance or rework are suggested.
The text spills over into engine mechanics simply because the most vital parts of the engine are electrical. Consequently, ignition and starting circuits, although strictly engine components, become part of the work.
Added in this new edition (Part 2) are such related topics as electronic equipment selection, installation and maintenance; advances in marine storage batteries and charging circuits; additional shop practices; and "hints and kinks" of boat electrical/electronic work.
