Boating Season Resolution

Some real-life lessons on boat electronics to be found in the latest Ocean Navigator marine electronics eNewsletter by Chris Parker, sailing from Bermuda to Puerto Rico.
“There�s often a deeper lesson, and here it is: Your vessel has many complex and vital systems, mechanical, electrical and otherwise. Most of these systems were designed and manufactured to be used. The majority of system failures result from LACK of use, not overuse. My recommendation is that you resolve to test all major systems on a regular schedule (say monthly) and always prior to an offshore trip, during spring commissioning and fall decommissioning.”
