Editorial Reviews

Sailing and Yachting
...has a great deal of merit, offering concise, compact advice, with diagrams, on most electrical problems that may occur on board. It is uncluttered with reams of technical jargon.....You will certainly learn more about basic electrical principles, system voltages, wiring standards, circuit protection and isolation, grounding systems and how to plan and install wiring in a boat, than you might from numerous more expensive books.
