ABYC electrical seminar set for January

The American Boat and Yacht Council will hold a four-day program called Introduction to Basic Marine Electric and Corrosion Protection from Jan. 8-11 at the Connecticut Marine Trades Association facility in Essex, Conn.

Instructor Dwight Escalera will present the newcomer to marine electrics with the basic information to get started in this area of marine service and troubleshooting. The program will explain all common terms used and discuss fundamental electrical theory as it applies to marine electrical systems and cathodic protection systems used to help mitigate corrosion on boats.

During class students will be taught how to use a common digital multi-meter to measure volts, electrical resistance and amperage, both AC and DC. Perhaps more important, this class will teach the successful student what the readings they get on their meter actually mean and what some of the corrective actions that may need to be taken are.

This class also will review some of the common causes for marine corrosion and how to provide suitable protection against it.

Course materials will be handed out during the first day of class.

Students with special needs must inform the ABYC in writing at the time of registration to ensure that special accommodations can be made.
