Product description


"Electrical problems are not an inevitable part of cruising and racing. An acceptable level of reliability is possible, and in fact is necessary,' says author John Payne. His Marine Electrical and Electronics Bible will help you achieve this reliability with detailed information on selecting, installing, maintaining and troubleshooting all the electrical and electronic systems on your boat. The information is presented in classic textbook style, accompanied by tables, graphs, and wiring diagrams to make the information easy to find and understand. Each chapter is dedicated to a system, which is explained and thoroughly analyzed. This new edition is fully updated to include modern systems and new technologies"--SAIL Sail Magazine This new edition is expanded to include advances in marine electronics, including the Internet, email, GMDSS, and updated radio frequencies. The easy-to-follow reference handbook advises, with diagrams, how to select, install, maintain, and troubleshoot onboard electrical or electronic systems. It includes a three-language electrical glossary, a worldwide service directory, and a listing of marine electrical suppliers. Cruising World The Marine Electrical and Electronics Bible by John Payne differs from most other treatments of this important topic in its outline format.

Practical Sailor Everything a sailor could possibly want to know about marine electronics is here...as a reference book on the subject it is outstanding. Classic Boat
