The definitive guide to designing, installing, and maintaining electrical and mechanical systems on your boat
Boatowner's Mechanical and Electrical Manual covers virtually anything on a sail or power boat with moving parts: engine, electrical, steering systems, winches, pumps, refrigeration, plumbing, rigging.
Updated to include new chapters and information about hybrid propulsion system, distributed power systems, electrical systems design, and fuel cells, it explores situations for legacy boats (traditional power) and explores options for new boats (hybrid power, fuel cells, inverter strategies), helping you both deal with existing systems and plan your next ones.
Praise for previous editions of Boatowners’s Mechanical and Electrical Manual:
"This book should come as standard equipment with every boat."
”Truly remarkable. . . . This book is the best of its kind."
