When to hire a pro...

Our boat (first-time boat owner unless you count the bass boat) needs some electrical work. The inverter doesn't seem to be working, when I switch the switch, I get no lights, sound, anything. Our outlets work on shore power, but that's no fun. We'd like juice when we actually go sailing and anchor out. (We just bought the boat, needs some rigging fixed before I feel comfortable taking her out) The windlass is fairly new but also not working.

I want to be a DIY...but I know NOTHING about electricity. I have a couple books but they also sort of read like greek to me. Should I just hire someone? Someone that's willing to explain things to me, and follow them around and learn while they are at it? Construction style stuff doesn't scare me...but systems are just a mystery to me.
