All Videos » Marine Electrical Systems

Marine electrical systems can be scary, mysterious stuff. They are often weak points that can turn a weekend on the water into a knuckle-busting grump-fest.

Fortunately we’ve put together an in-depth 6-part video series on marine electrical systems. In this video series, we asked Professor Don Eley to show us what we need to know to untangle the electrical systems on our own boats. We hope these videos give you confidence in dealing with electrical systems on your own boat.
