Payne is an international authority on marine electrical systems and electronics, and has previously penned two major books – Marine Electrical and Electronics Bible (now in its third edition), and Motorboat Electrical and Electronics Manual.

Concise, compact and fully-illustrated for easy reference, it covers:

  • Boat plumbing systems
  • Fresh water systems
  • Hot water systems
  • Galley plumbing systems
  • Watermaker systems
  • Salt water systems
  • Bilge pump systems
  • Shower (gray) water systems
  • Sewage (black) water and MSD systems

Payne is a sailor and a professional marine electrical engineer and surveyor, with a long career in merchant shipping and the offshore oil industry.
