This course is a part of a package deal of nine courses in electricity and electronics onboard. 

This course is about how to examine the electronics on board, especially before buying a boat. 

Besides, various aspects of autopilot troubleshooting and setup are reviewed.

Many things can be checked in connection with the purchase of a used boat. The course explains where to pay special attention. It can be things like:

  • Has there been water in the boat?
  • Batteries – what is the voltage after standing ½-1 hour without charging?
  • What age and condition do the autopilot, plotter, and other instruments have?
  • What does it look like behind the switchboard?
  • How are the cables and wires around the boat in general?
  • What is the condition of pumps?
