In this session, we will look at the best options for preparing your boat’s electrical systems for cruising! What do you need to consider for batteries, charging, and power management overall when you are offshore?
We will look at all the key electrical components, circuits and discuss electrical problems using a multi meter. The goal is to work towards electrical system’s self-sufficiency while cruising near or far.
