Even if you're taking to the ocean below energy or sail, no matter if you leap round the bay on your runabout or pass oceans on your cruiser, youll locate every thing you want to keep, fix, and improve your boats DC and AC electric structures during this thoroughly functional consultant. Boatowners Illustrated electric instruction manual is the straight forward, roll-up-your-sleeves handbook for onboard electric initiatives, from solving free connections to rewiring your boat to ABYC standards.
«The Boatowners Illustrated electric guide is ideal for studying how your boats electric approach and masses of its gear works, and it'll be a useful consultant whilst including apparatus to boot. This e-book should be in each boaters library as a prepared reference on tips to make potent upkeep and adjustments that conform to ABYC standards.»-from the Foreword by means of Ed Sherman, Senior teacher and Curriculum clothier, American Boat and Yacht Council

Safe installation involves electrical and mechanical considerations, both of which are covered by ABYC standards. E 27 What Is a Battery? Probably no aspect of a boat is less well understood by its owner than its batteries. Our “knowledge” of batteries often consists of a few remembered facts from a high school chemistry course, experience with our own boats and automobiles, and, unfortunately, a barrage of advertising hype. As with most of today’s mass-marketed products, engineering takes a backseat to marketing.

When a battery is fully charged, all of the lead sulfate of the positive plate has oxidized to lead peroxide. Further charging (overcharging) oxidizes the lead of the grid as well, turning it into lead peroxide. Lead peroxide has little mechanical strength, and the grid will ultimately fall to the bottom of the cell. • The rest of the overcharging energy goes into hydrolysis—separation of the water of the electrolyte into H2 and O2—which we saw as bubbles in our kitchen battery. Various tricks are employed in sealed batteries to recombine the gases into water, but, if overcharging and gassing are too vigorous, all batteries vent 30 Batteries gas and lose electrolyte.

9 requires that we actually measure the SG of the electrolyte. This operation is messy, destructive of clothing, awkward in the spaces where batteries are usually stowed, and impossible with a sealed battery. 10. 2 volts when 50% discharged. If we can wait 24 hours, determining the remaining capacity of a battery is simple using an accurate voltmeter. The 24-hour rest period is provided by switching between two battery banks daily. 6 volts when the battery obviously has some amount of charge remaining?
