This handbook presents the bewildering array of electrical and electronic devices found aboard modern trailerable fishing boats. With Payne's help, every bass and sports fisherman should be able to make the right choices for his boat's equipment. The book covers the following topics: outboard electrics; trolling motors; downriggers and ion systems; trim tabs; batteries and battery charging; boat wiring; sonar and fish finders; VHF and DSC radio; GPS; charts, radar and autopilots; and more. Thorough and well organised and written with clarity and insight, this book aims to enhance the skills of any small-boat fisherman through a better understanding of the installation, troubleshooting and repairs of any electrical system associated with rod and reel.
