Tom’s Tips About Modern Boat Electronics

1. Read the instructions, but do it the way that best suits your psyche. If you have trouble with working in the abstract, consider the following.

2. Some read through the entire manual and then sit down with the “device.” These, unlike me, are very smart people.

3. I have to turn on the device, carefully fool around with it a bit, just enough to learn what the manual is talking about, and then start reading the manual with the device on, so that I can walk through the steps hands on.

4. When I start fooling around with it, I’m very careful to at least try to not do anything too drastic (stupid). It helps if you are sure that you can undo whatever you just did. Have a pad and pen with you so that you can write down anything questionable that you’re going to do and retrace whatever steps got you in trouble.

5. If all else fails, give the manual back to your wife.
