Product Description

Miner Brotherton and Edwin Sherman. The 12-Volt Bible for Boats is a clear, non-threatening introduction to the 12-volt electrical systems used on small boats to power everything from reading lights to bilge pumps. This second edition is thoroughly updated with respect to modern batteries, breaker and panel design, alternative energy sources, and troubleshooting equipment, but it retains the fundamental simplicity that is the source of its enduring popularity (more than 100,000 copies sold).Read Chapter 1: Basic Theory of Electricity

Comments about The 12 Volt Bible for Boats, Second Edition:

I am a brand new first-time boat owner and know "NOTHING" about how my boat operates!! This book is helping me understand the electric/battery systems and what makes things "go". Though technically a bit over my head, it is well-written and I'm learning. I am certain I will use it for reference for a long time to come!
