Recommendations for lay persons boat Electrics?

Anyone have a recommendation for a hard copy reference for doing electrical/electronic work on a boat?

Thanks very much,
Jim Lee

Here is the Nigel Calder book on boat electrical.

https://www.amazon.com/Boatowners-Me...RAM1XWEWNDAPH0


He also wrote a good book on understanding charts. Don Casey also has a book on Electrical, it is not as thorough but a good resource. This one book contains a bunch of his books on one location.
