SAVE TIME AND MONEY WITH THIS STATE-OF-THE-ART GUIDE TO THE LATEST, MOST ADVANCED DIAGNOSTIC EQUIPMENT AND TECHNIQUES

“Ed Sherman is one of America’s great teachers and communicators of marine technology.”--Tim Murphy, Executive Editor, Cruising World

Whether you are a marine electronics professional or a boatowner, Advanced Marine Electrics and Electronics Troubleshooting helps you understand the new, more powerful methods of troubleshooting marine electrical and electronic systems. A modern boat’s sophisticated installations and networked electronics can stretch the traditional diagnostic methods based on trouble lights and multimeters past their useful limits. This book will show you how to:

  • Use microprocessor-based diagnostic tools and techniques from the automotive and communications sectors, adapted for boats for the first time
  • Diagnose the most difficult AC and DC problems
  • Protect communications and navigation electronics from interference and lightning
  • Seek out and eliminate stray-current sources and galvanic corrosion

Synopsis:

Ed Sherman is a regular contributor to Professional Boatbuilder and Cruising World and a senior staff writer for the American Boat & Yacht Council.

Synopsis:

Discover your electrical problem before it short-circuits your boating fun This state-of-the-art toolkit is packed with diagnostic techniques for sniffing out hidden wiring breaks, interference sources, short circuits, loose connections, undersized wiring and buss bars, faulty generators, and much more.
