with Lars Antonsen
Saturday, May 13, 2017, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. $95
Cruisers College will take you through the ins and outs of a boat’s electrical systems. There is plenty of information every boat owner should know about these critical systems, whether they are doing improvements themselves, paying a professional for upgrades, or simply trying to understand the system on your boat and “Keep it Alive.”
A sample list of topics covered:
How an electrical system works
How to monitor electrical systems
Early warning signs of trouble
How to use a multimeter for troubleshooting
Sizing and care of battery banks
Proper wire selection, termination, and tools
Alternative energy such as solar and wind generation
How to make repairs to this critical system on almost every cruising vessel
This one-day course includes new technologies and how they might interface or be a solution for your energy needs. Let’s keep the light’s on!
All seminars are held at the NW Center of Excellence for Marine Manufacturing & Technology in Anacortes.
