My Boat Electronics

My Boat Electronics is run by Lars Doktor Kristensen in collaboration with his family. We have emerged as an extension to many years of electronics servicing on many hundreds of different boats and boat types. Moreover, Lars has held numerous of local lectures on that same topic via the company Prokyon. Now is the desire to reach out to boaters with more knowledge about how care should be taken when changing the power system. One mistake can have major consequences and endanger boat owners themselves and other people on board, which not many realize. Myboatelectronics.com will primarily be a platform for online education in electricity and electronics on board the boats.
