Cruisers Marine Electrical  (Part II)

Electronics & Electrical Troubleshooting for Cruisers

with Jeff Cote

 

Course Information:  

This course is intended for any cruising boater, not just the skipper, who wants to learn more about electronics and electrical systems in the boating environment and wants to know how troubleshoot an electrical or electronics problem on their boats.


Jeff is a systems design engineer, avid boater, entrepreneur, the author of the monthly column "Tech Talk" in Pacific Yachting Magazine and “Hotwire” in Northwest Yachting Magazine as well as regular yacht club and Power Squadron presenter. His company, Pacific Yacht Systems Inc., provides boaters with easy to use, reliable solutions for marine electrical and electronics. Jeff’s presentations are designed for beginners, tech-savvy, and DIY experts alike.

Prerequisites: An interest in electronics and electrical power on your boat! We strongly recommend that boaters have attended Cruisers Marine Electrical Part I  (Note: Many of last year's participants over-estimated their knowledge and would have benefited from participation in both courses, rather than taking Part II only)

Now that you have identified the major components and understand how they work from Part I: Cruisers Marine Electrical, join Jeff Cote, an ABYC trained and NMEA certified marine technician, as he reveals the best way to trouble-shoot electrical and electronic problems aboard your boat.
