Today’s skippers do not only navigate but also have to operate the complicated electrical system on board and, should it be necessary, be able to repair them. In order to do so they need fundamental technical understanding: Anchor winch, navigation lights, bow thruster or electric winches – all that has to work for a trouble-free trip. But where to gain that knowledge, should the systems fail? The book facilitates essential theoretical basics in a comprehensible way and describes products and their suitability regardless of commercial interests. It helps the skipper when a system is dysfunctional and the defect has to be searched for systematically and dealt with.
The knowledge conveyed in this book enables yacht owners to acquire the proper equiptment before their trip, solve minor problems at sea and master issues of the electrical system on board.
