Taking the baton from International Marine's best-selling 12-Volt Bible for Boats and Boatowner's Mechanical and Electrical Manual, Boatowner's Illustrated Handbook of Wiring delves deeper into the how-to-wire, how-to-solder approach of the former and the electrical system design, troubleshooting, and improvement aspects of the latter. DC and AC wiring materials and techniques are all covered, as are batteries, alternators, inverters, generators, corrosion control, and alternate energy installations (solar, wind, and water). There are detailed instructions for wiring radios, loran, and other radio navigation devices. The dozens of weekend projects include installing cabin lights, navigation lights, burglar alarms, battery charge indicators, bilge alarms, and much more. Extensive tables summarize the most important information and specifications in a quick-reference format.
Boatowner's Illustrated Handbook of Wiring is a user-friendly, roll-up-your-sleeves manual for onboard electrical projects, from fixing loose connections to rewiring the boat. Simple, clear, and abundantly illustrated, here is the key to understanding and customizing you boat's DC and AC systems.

Charlie Wing earned his U.S. Coast Guard captain's license in the early 1990s. His frustration with available study guides led him to create Get Your Captain's License. A former Bowdoin College physics professor and research scientist for NASA, Wing has a reputation for demystifying complex topics. The author of several top-selling home-maintenance and remodeling books and founder of two house-building schools, Wings has also written Boatowner's Illustrated Handbook of Wiring, The Liveaboard Report, and Boating Magazine's One-Minute guide to Nautical Rules of the Road (all International Marine).Review:
``The square format allows large, clearly defined and labeled wiring diagrams, an attribute that is worth its weight in gold when sprawled on a cabin sole in 90-degree heat with the floorboards up and a multimeter in hand troubleshooting some mystery short.'' (Cruising World)
``It's well worth having if your boat is more than a few years old and electrical gremlims are starting to apear.'' (Starboard Tack)
``When electrical problems and projects come up, [this book] will be your best friend.'' (The Ensign)
