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.

    Huge FAIL, and here's why ...

    This battery terminal looks cool, but its has HUGE flaws. First of all, The tightening screw does not screw in far enough to allow it to grasp the terminal post, even with the insert ring, spacer, spreader (whatever you like to call it) but there is a solution to this. Replace the screw, same type but instead use one with a 1.00 pitch. The original screw is too long, the reason why most people here have used the insert ring. I replaced the screw and avoided using the insert ring. It will grasp the post securely.Second, the outputs are not true 0-gauge. Its 2-gauge at the most. I bored the holes using a half inch drill bit. Now my positive wire and Kicker 0-gauge wire slips easily without any hassle. If you don't bore the holes, you will be cutting off strands of wire in order for your wire to fit. Its better to do it right or not even bother. Kicker failed with this terminal. In my case this terminal resulted in a downgrade, but the modifications i made... 5/5 Josue O. - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    LITTLE TINY ALLEN BOLT WILL NOT CLAMP ONTO THE BATTER POST

    1/5 Patrick Simpson (Woodinville, Wa, US) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Kicker BT4 Positive/Negative Competition Battery Terminal with 1/0-8 Gauge and 4-8 Gauge Output (Wireless Phone Accessory) Looks well made at first until I tightened the positive battery terminal clamp allen head bolt. I tightened it as far as it would go and it still would not make solid connection. I kept slowly tightening it but it never got fully tight to make a proper connection. Finally the little tiny allen bolt snapped off. I suggest you buy another brand that has a proper high strength nut and bolt to tighten the connection to the battery. Now I cannot drive the car until I get a better one. Wasted time and money on this POS. Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , February 13, 2016

    Very easy to work with cabling

    These cables turned out to be the ideal solution for a travel trailer solar installation. I found that the finely stranded copper allowed me to run the cabling nicely beneath the frame of the unit and when it came to tight corners and sharp turns, this cabling had no troubles routing along the path. The jacket, while not impermeable, did manage to retain it's protection even after repeated dragging along rough edges. However, I would suggest that you use rubber grommets as I did if running along any sharp surface as before doing so, I did manage to scrape off about a millimeter of the jacket while pulling the cable through before installing the grommets.

    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.

This review is from: BT1088 Platinum Dual 1/0 or 4 & 8 Gauge Positive or Negative Battery Terminal Looks slick and neat with two of these on my battery. I've got 4 1/0 gauge wires to my battery, 2 positive and two grounds and this terminal made my wiring clean and simple to take on and off. And the two 8 gauge outputs were able to fit all of my smaller accessories while my factory wiring attached nicely under the tightening bolt on the terminal.

I use this as a "gas gauge" on a lithium ion bike battery pack for an E-Bike. Since it runs off the same voltage it is measuring it's a simple 2 wire hookup. I added a little toggle switch in the circuit so it doesn't have to display 24/7, just when I want to see what's left in the tank - so to speak.

This review is from: Waterproof Monitor DC 4.5-150V 12/24/36/48V Volt Battery Meter Voltage Tester Automative Electric Cars Gauge Golf Cart E-Bike Bicycle Motorcycle Small Digital Voltmeter 0.56"LED Blue (Misc.) I installed this in a golf cart to monitor the battery voltage. It worked well at first and then began to display voltages approximately 4 volts less than it should. This went on for a couple of weeks and then it died altogether.Edit: The meter has returned to life after taking a few days off but it is still reading a few volts low. Perhaps there is a poor connection somewhere and it's not the meter that is at fault. Further investigation is needed.Another edit: I finally traced down the fault and it was with the wiring, not the meter so I'm changing the rating I gave it.

Works as of installation. Hopes it lasts. The bar graph volt meter I got before only lasted about 4 months. I love the blue illumination and the voltage seems very accurate for my 36 volt club Cart. While charginging it goes up to 40 volts then goes down to 38 volts at full charge. Has had it a couple of months. Seems very accurate and makes me happy to finally know the actual voltage. The blue color is very nice but yes in the sun you can't read it. But how often is the gauge in the sun?
