Boat Systems - November 4 & 5, 2024

Introduction To Boat Systems - Maintained By YOU The Boat Owner

Join us in Vero Beach Florida on Monday November 4 & Tuesday November 5, 2024 for our two day Seminar Introduction To Boat Systems Maintained By YOU The Boat Owner.

Captain Chris will take the mystery out of maintenance. If fuel filters, impellers & bilge pumps aren't in your everyday comfort zone then this two day seminar will help prepare you to start your Cruising Adventure. From changing your own fuel filter to maintaining your shaft seals, Captain Chris will get you safely on your way...saving your $$ for marinas not mechanics!

In two jam-packed days with real boat parts, hands-on practice and problem solving ideas Captain Chris will cover:

  • POWER MANAGEMENT - live electrical panel including AC and DC systems
  • FUEL FILTERS - how to replace an element
  • COOLING SYSTEMS - complete engine raw water and fresh water
  • PUMPS & IMPELLERS - tricks to replacing yours
  • SHAFT SEAL - traditional and dripless designs
  • BLACK WATER SYSTEMS - from the head to the holding tank including macerators
  • BILGE PUMPS - trouble shooting
  • AIR CONDITIONERS - water pumps and strainers

Come to where the tropics begin in Vero Beach, Florida and Ask Captain Chris about boat maintenance.
