Learn About Your Yacht’s Electrical System

This course is for boaters who want to start to prepare the electrical systems of their boat for cruising. Understand what each electrical component does, how it interacts with the other systems and ensure that you have them connected properly.

Once you have the basics, learn how to maintain your electrical system properly and safely. This is the first of a two part series entitled “In Preparation for Cruising” offered by the Calgary Chapter with instructor Jeff Cote.
