The title " Replacing your Boat's Electrical System" is rather daunting if like me you would never dream of undertaking such a project and if something electrical does go wrong a call to the local marina electrician has been the only solution. To be frank having read the book I still wouldn’t have the confidence to undertake a major upgrade myself. However, I found it excellent to help me understand how my electrics work, how they should be maintained and most importantly my tool box now has the essentials for any DIY repairs.
Have you ever wondered what you would do if any of your boat electrical systems failed? If you don't know your wiring systems from your anchor cables, maybe it's time to take the Little Ship Club Boat Electrics course which runs over two Wednesday evenings in November.
This course is divided into two logical halves: on the one hand, generating or acquiring electrical energy and storing it; on the other hand, using that energy in a boat’s systems. Along the way, optimising the use of a scarce resource at sea and avoiding corrosion are covered. Included in the cost of the course is a copy of the RYA’s book Boat Electrics. No previous knowledge of physics or electrical theory is required.
