The Association of Marina Industries is offering a new webinar on Marina Electrical Systems. This session will provide a review of the current ground-fault requirements per the National Electrical Code and general best practices for a marina electrical system.  Electrical problems within a marina can be minimized or avoided if they are detected early and addressed immediately.  The presentation will provide a checklist and many examples of what owners, operators, and maintenance individuals should be looking for during routine marina inspections to minimize potential issues before they happen.

Webinar Instructor 
Chris Dolan is the Sales and Customer Relations Manager for Marina Electrical Equipment (MEE) in Williamsburg, Virginia. He has been in the industry since 2000 focusing primarily on electrical design and the manufacturing of marina electrical and safety products.

He currently serves as the secretary on the executive board of the Association of Marina Industries.

About a month ago, I traveled to Charlevoix, MI for a special press event to introduce the H9 to a small group of journalists. The water and the weather were a bit cool but the sun was out and Lake Charlevoix was calm and the Four Winns H9 was very impressive. This is a 29-foot 11-inch luxury day boat with a 9- foot 2-inch beam and it features a fabulous expansive flat floor all the way from the bow rider area to the transom and the swim platform.
