Description: You may think that making a wiring diagram for your boat wouJd be a
monstrous headache, and the results as useful as a street map of Brooklyn
viewed from ten feet away. But read how simple it is when you take small
steps, one area and one sketch at a. time, whenever you happen to look at
a particular detail. Eventually, you will have a collection of sketches which
is your wiring diagram.
With the diagram, trouble shooting will be much easier, and so will planning.
Repairs will be much faster, too. Sooner or later, you wi" decide that
as designed, the boat's electrical equipment is less than perfect. You may
want lights in new places, switches in different locations, add instruments
and equipment, run electricity from better charged batteries. The step from
knowing your boat's eJectrics to making changes will come quite naturally.
Start with a relatively easy subject and later you will be surprised by the
degree of confidence you have gained. Your boat wlll then fit your personal
expectations in a way no one else can match with any amount of hired
repair service.
As in earlier editions of this book. you are invited to write with questions
and comments which we will answer as swiftly as possible. Especially. tell
us what new details should be covered in the next edition, and what additional
equipment you would like to have or make. And te/l us about your
boat: it enjoys a quality not many others do, your tender loving care.
