Product Description:

The definitive guide to designing, installing, and maintaining electrical and mechanical systems on your boat

Boatowner's Mechanical and Electrical Manual covers virtually anything on a sail or power boat with moving parts: engine, electrical, steering systems, winches, pumps, refrigeration, plumbing, rigging.

Updated to include new chapters and information about hybrid propulsion system, distributed power systems, electrical systems design, and fuel cells, it explores situations for legacy boats (traditional power) and explores options for new boats (hybrid power, fuel cells, inverter strategies), helping you both deal with existing systems and plan your next ones.

“A major achievement. . . . It would be hard to imagine anything going wrong on a boat that couldn’t be figured out with this book.”
Sailing World

“A truly remarkable bible. . . . This book is the best of its kind.”
— ——WoodenBoat

“The world’s best technical reference and troubleshooting book.”
—Sailing —Inland and Offshore

Work Boat World

“Calder lives what he writes, . . . [and] what he offers . . . is practical solutions to problems associated with increasingly complex marine systems. . . . [A] bargain for anyone in the construction and repair side of the boat business.”
