Rob MacleodStarting April 30, Canadian Yachting Media will launch a new webinar series. Rob MacLeod, Canadian Yachting magazine contributor, will host the webinars that will look at various aspects of boating and boat maintenance.

Joining Rob is Rod Brandon (Sheen Marine – ABYC Marine Electrical Certified Technician - www.sheenmarine.com) to explain the changes in wiring standards and the importance of updating your boat’s systems for both safety and enjoyment.

For this webinar series, Rod provides technical advice to help assure safe and reliable system design and implementation to professional marine association electrical standards (ABYC and NMEA) and sound industry practices.

Included in the webinar will be a demonstration of the what a typical modern electrical installation should look like and how it should operate, including video of wire connections, component installation and function, and safe practices and installation tips.
