    I am looking for a good book geared toward a technician that would
    help cover grounding issues and their troubleshooting, Antennas and
    radio reception (VHF), AC generators/inverters and lightning
    protection. As I will be buying the book or books through an online
    selller, I won't have the chance to check it out in person. Thanks in
    advance for your recommendations.

    Charlie Wing's book is a good one for electrical systems. The best I've
    seen for SSB is a freebie available on ICOM's website. For charging
    systems check out

    I'll enthusiastically second Doug's suggestions,
    particularly Charlie Wing's book.

  4. Edgar J. Beyn's "The 12-volt doctor's practical handbook for the boat's
    electrical system" is recommended reading.

    I highly recommend the marine electrical and electronics bible, by John C.
    It covers all the subjects you mentioned; I learned a thing or two from it.
    John even solved a problem for me by email, that had the company tech for
    the device completely stumped.

    Thanks all, for the advice. I wound up ordering the John Payne book,
    "Motorboat Electrical & Electronics Manual", as it seemed the most
    technically inclined of those I looked at .
