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

Creator: David Getchell | Sports & Recreation - 1994-01-01

While a car battery will not damage an electric outboard, crank batteries, as they are known, are designed to deliver a powerful surface charge to spin ... You can also buy battery gauges that will tell you how much charge is left in your battery.

Publisher: McGraw Hill Professional

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.

This review is from: TEMCo WC0190 - 30' (15' Blk, 15' Red) 4 Gauge AWG Welding Lead & Car Battery Cable Copper Wire BLACK + RED | MADE IN USA (Misc.) I ordered the TEMCo WC0190 - 30' (15' Blk, 15' Red) 4 Gauge AWG Welding Lead & Car Battery Cable Copper Wire because I needed it for my 1972 Mustang, I guess I didn't read the description very well because I thought I was getting 30 foot runs. It is still what I need, even though they are 15 foot of black and 15 foot of red. It's still well manufactured and I'm satisfied with the quality so I will just reorder more if I need it.

    Made in the USA with pure copper

    Made in the USA! You can actually go to the manufacturer's website and check out the pride they put into their materials and work.I've learned a lot about battery cables in the past 6 months, and while I've settled with CCA (copper clad aluminum) in the past when buying from the box stores, I've evolved to using pure copper cables or OFC (oxygen free copper) if I can find it and then using quality lugs that I can crimp on myself. This gives me increased quality control on my projects and helps provide that clean, custom look I've been chasing for years Of course improved performance and reliability don't hurt either.Follow up your quality cable and lug connections with good double or triple walled heat shrink and you'll be on the path to understanding life!This cable is a great compromise between that cheap crap you can buy off the peg at (insert store name here) that's usually too long because one size fits all and that ridiculously priced premium audio cable... 5/5 James R.

    5/5 daniel bell - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: TEMCo WC0189 - 20' (10' Blk, 10' Red) 4 Gauge AWG Welding Lead & Car Battery Cable Copper Wire BLACK + RED | MADE IN USA (Misc.) Awesome wire. Real copper conductivity and saved me lots of money. I use this to power my amps in my car stereo. Car audio wire is overpriced cause its nice and pretty, a little more flexible and they advertise it and market it to people already dropping bank on expensive gear. Whats another 150 bucks for some wire? Aaahh just add it to my bill! Im not that dumb. I dont care what color the wire is. This stuff is plenty flexible and the jacket is tougher because its made to be dragged around in the ground all day. Ill use it again. Copper is copper!

    3/5 Volcanic_xB - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: BT1088 Platinum Dual 1/0 or 4 & 8 Gauge Positive or Negative Battery Terminal Does the job....however be aware that the negative battery post may still not tighten up with one sleeve in. Took the one out for the positive....installed fine. Went to tighten the negative with the sleeve in and with it tightened all the way the terminal could still turn on the post VERY easily. My workaround was to cut a small amount from the extra sleeve and fit it within the other (2 sleeves on negative post). Not exactly a perfect fit but does the job.

    Good Except For Screw Heads

    4/5 Ray - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: BT1088 Platinum Dual 1/0 or 4 & 8 Gauge Positive or Negative Battery Terminal Given a four star rating only because the set screws in the #8 holes had such poorly formed sockets I would have had to replace them. (Luckily I didn't need to use them.) An allen wrench just couldn't get a grip in the screws for #8 wire because the hex socket in the head was so poorly formed. But other than that they are great terminals. The screws for the wire holes other than #8 and for the terminals grip were fine. I wouldn't hesitate to buy them again.

    5/5 Chuck Self (Birmingham, AL USA) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: TEMCo WC0178 - 20' (10' Blk, 10' Red) 2 Gauge AWG Welding Lead & Car Battery Cable Copper Wire BLACK + RED | MADE IN USA (Misc.) This appears to be a quality product. I measured it as soon as I received it and both red and black were exactly 10' long. I'm using this cabling to wire a 10,000 pound winch to my jeep that can pull up to 400 amps (12V) at full load. I do not expect to run the winch at those loads very long and I will keep this run as short as possible to keep loss to a minimum, but I have confidence that this will do the job.

    5/5 Rodney D. Reynolds (Plano, TX USA) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: TEMCo WC0180 - 50' (25' Blk, 25' Red) 2 Gauge AWG Welding Lead & Car Battery Cable Copper Wire BLACK + RED | MADE IN USA (Misc.) Great quality, fast shipping, exactly as advertised at a fraction of the price you would pay at a local automotive repair store. Make sure to get the right gauge connectors to make a professional connection - i ordered TEMCO connectors.Use cable cutters for a clean cut, slice off 1" of the insulation by making a circular cut around the cable, and then slice it in half, lengthwise - keep this exceed. Using a MAPP gas torch and electronic solder, heat the cable, apply the solder and fill the connector end to the top. Let cool. Now, custom fit the exceed insulation around the gap at the top the cable/connector and cut to fit. Place on cable and seal with black or red electrical tape. If you had color coded heat shrink, even better.I custom fabricate battery array cables for our solar power system at our ranch and these are perfect.
