    The writer is a JERK-OFF-PUNK-ASS-BITCH ! ! ! I wanted to look at this to see if it was worth downloading. ITS NOT WORTH WASTING YOUR TIME. I have three different hard cover books on Boat Electrical Systems and together they don't cost what this trash costs.

    I despise Rip Off artist's looking to get rich for work that others have already done in real book formats.
