The Outboard Boater's Handbook, Advanced Seamanship and Practical Skills

Creator: David R. Getchell | 1994-01-01

Batteries for electric motors are a different breed from those used in cars. While a car battery will not damage an electric outboard, ... You can also buy battery gauges that will tell you how much charge is left in your battery.

Publisher: International Marine/Ragged Mountain Press

About this book
This comprehensive manual shows you how to go places and do things you never thought possible in a small outboard motorboat. A well-designed ruggedly built 17-footer, for instance, can fish offshore, circumnavigate Lake Superior, and crisscross the continent on inland waterways or on a trailer pulled by the family car. Small outboards are among the most versatile boats ever developed and are far more able than you might expect. Covered here are all the popular types--and some exciting alternatives as well as methods that may change your entire boating outlook.Aided by contributions from other experts, veteran outboard skipper David R. Getchell, Sr., offers a wealth of useful facts and special savvy that reveal for the first time in a single book the true potential of these democratic boats 20 feet and under. Here are the means to understand what can be done, and the way to do it safely, including: how to judge a boat's potential and capabilities based on design and construction; how to rebuild an older boat; how to handle a little boat in big seas, surf, or shallow water; how to navigate; how to read the weather; how to head upriver or offshore; how to trailer your boat; how to manage and equip it for camp cruising on a nearby lake or for subarctic exploration; and how to care for the boat and motor.

    RAD Cycle Products

    My research paid off -- this is great!

    My chrome wheels have begun to deteriorate: there's pitting/corrosion where the tire bead is, a common problem (I only recently learned) for those of us who live in places where roads must be heavily salted in the wintertime. So, the tires lose air annoyingly quickly. Because I'm not yet ready to purchase a new car & didn't want to spend $600+ on a new set of alloy wheels for my aging vehicle, a 12-volt compressor pump seemed like a good solution.Thanks to all the reviews -- good and bad -- found here on Amazon for a number of 12-v compressors, I decided to purchase this one. And I'm glad I did. It's speedy and plenty powerful for my needs; quieter, with less vibration, than what I was expecting. Love the compact size, a built-in gauge that's larger than some, and the hard-sided carrying case. If you're a newbie to the routine of inflating your own tires, don't be intimidated: this compressor is a breeze to use, you can easily tell when the valve connector locks onto... 5/5 Portia - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    low quality and dishonest business practices

    0 1/5 Robert LaFrance - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: 12 VOLT ELECTRIC AIR PUMP w/GAUGE for Tires Bikes Cars Air Matresses (Sports) I ordered this pump because of the great reviews. But when it came, I found the fittings to be poorly machined and it was slapped together with low-quality parts. The air pressure gauge is a joke.The icing on the cake was when I got an email from the seller promising me a FREE PUMP if I write a good review! Now I know where those good reviews came from! This form of bribery is certainly dishonest and probably illegal.Yeah, it pumps air. But so do a lot of other pumps that are cheaper and better quality. This is going straight to a garage sale and I'm buying a SLIME pump. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , November 4, 2012

    Coleman Cable

    Description is misleading - inferior product

    0 1/5 Mike "Mike" (USA) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Coleman Cable 08660 Heavy-Duty 4-Gauge Auto Battery Booster Cables with Polar Glo-Watt Clamps (20 Feet) (Automotive) The cables are made in the USA, which is great, but they are not copper cables. They are the much cheaper "copper clad aluminum" cables that are of much lower quality. The product description states, "Extra Heavy-Duty" and "the strongest consumer grade available", which CCA is not. I need the jumper cables for emergency use only so they hopefully won't be used much. If you need to unroll and roll up the cables often look for copper cable, not this product. This kind of information should have been in the product description, but then if it was, I wouldn't have made this purchase. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , February 1, 2011

    0 5/5 Native Trekker (PA) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Coleman Cable 08660 Heavy-Duty 4-Gauge Auto Battery Booster Cables with Polar Glo-Watt Clamps (20 Feet) (Automotive) I purchased these cables based solely on internet research. Coleman seems to be a well respected company. After inspecting the 08660 twenty foot long four gauge cables, I am satisfied with my purchase. The materials appear to be of good quality, and the clamp design is intuitive. There is a top of page review dated September 14th 2006 by Privacy Advocate titled "Slight disappointment" in which he describes his concern about the clamps having only one side of the jaw plated with copper. This actually is an intelligent design. The copper cable is connected to only one jaw (the jaw that is copper plated for increased conductivity). Copper plating the non-connected jaw would be counter productive. I recommend purchasing a minimum length of twenty feet, a minimum of four gauge cable, and clamps rated a minimum of 500 amps. The length is recommended because you may not always be able to place a boost vehicle nose to nose or side by side. The gauge and amps are particularly important if you...

    12 Volt battery Monitor

    Seemingly just another auto gadget fortunately the Equus 3721 is more sophisticated than its ponderous description. A breeze to connect to any car's 12 Volt electrical system. Simply push into the lighter socket or an auxiliary power outlet now found in many newer vehicles. With the engine running the instrument constantly displays battery condition with an LED light; amber when marginal, red if the battery is discharging. A green light indicates a correctly functioning electrical system. All is well with both battery and, most importantly, the alternator. The Equus is also an accurate voltmeter. Digital read-outs give exact voltage in the electrical system. Potential alternator problems or a failing battery will be indicated by below normal voltages, plus an amber or red light. Extra information is a battery icon graphically showing total battery charge. Tending towards erratic read-outs, and therefore unreliability, it is not the unit's best feature... 4/5 J. B. Syrett "Barry Syrett" (Gig Harbor, WA USA) - See all my reviews, April 16, 2008

    VERY GOOD FOR SUCH A LOW PRICE

    The Honda 2005 civic has a marginal charging system. This meter is ideal for determining when it is time to turn off the radio to reduce load on the alternator. Voltage reading is very accurate, much better than 1% as measured against a small Beckman pocket meter, which in turn has been checked against a Powerex Wizard aa cell charger. Warning lights function well.Some things to note when using this tester: Standard voltage of a 12 volt battery is 12.6 volts. Some deep cycle absorbed glass mat batteries will read 12.8. This is after loading the battery by turning on the headlights for 10 seconds, to remove surface charge. Note that while the lights are on, the voltage drops quickly at first, then the voltage stabilizes. Turning off the lights causes the voltage to rise again gradually. After a few minutes the voltage will stop rising. If the voltage settles at 12.6 (or 12.8 for AGM battery) battery is charged, assuming that the battery is near 68 degrees F.

    Works great, however, digital display was red and not blue on the one I received

    0 3/5 Carpe diem - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Mini LED Display Digital Car Voltmeter 12V/24V Vehicle Voltage Gauge (Electronics) Works great, however, digital display was red and not blue on the one I received unlike the one shown in the picture. Would have given 5 stars otherwise. I was looking for it to be blue as described so it would match my cars indicator and dash lights. Luckily there are some red lights in my car as well as such was still able to use it. If your lucky enough like me to have a car which has the cigaret lighter outlet in a convenient place for a digital gauge you can plug in and forget about it and will always know and monitor your voltage every time you in your car. Nice surprise as this device is intended to test as needed rather than staying in place as I have done. Saves from having to run a voltage meter with another kind of gauge if that's what your going for like me. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , April 2, 2013

    Cheaply Build, but gets the job done!

    Given the low price this sells for, I wasn't expecting much, but then again, I didn't need much.I have a second, dual battery on my pickup that is isolated when the ignition is off, and I run several things off of it, and just wanted a cheap and easy way to keep any eye on the voltage, and this gets that job done.The construction feels cheap. In fact, the little screw part on the end you put in the socket, that you would normally unscrew to change the fuse, is made of plastic even (except for the electrically conducting tip). Don't recall ever seeing any type of thing you insert into this type of socket not being metal for that part. So with that in mind, I wouldn't expect it would stand up to a whole lot of taking it out and putting it back in repeatedly. If you're going to stick it in and leave it, it will probably be ok.The LED display is red, and I was worried it might be too bright, given the socket I was putting it in is on top of the dash,... 4/5 D.
