The Author and Electrician
David Sheriff is a completely retired marine electrician living in Nampa Idaho.  He became a boat tradesman in the year 2000 and worked for over a decade on recreational vessels in every harbor in Southern California.  Mr. Sheriff's previous career spanned electrical engineering, sales and management working in audio recording, traffic signal control systems and semiconductor capital equipment.  This atypical background for a boating tradesman gave him a scientific appreciation for marine technology as well as a compulsion to write about what he has learned.  Mr. Sheriff tried out ideas on his Islander 28 sailboat docked in San Pedro.  Raised within earshot of Lake Michigan, he reports being hopelessly addicted to boats and big water.
