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!

Come to our two-day seminar where the tropics begin in Vero Beach, Florida and Ask Captain Chris about boat maintenance.

In our two-day, jam-packed, hands-on seminar with real boat parts, real world practice and problem solving ideas Captain Chris covers:

  • POWER MANAGEMENT - live electrical panel including AC and DC systems
  • INVERTERS - what they do and how they make boating life better
  • 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


Though we recommend all crew members attend from beginners to the more seasoned cruiser, this seminar is only a few miles from the Atlantic Ocean, the Outlets of Vero Beach and the Seal Museum...if your partner decides to jump ship and enjoy the Florida sunshine!

Space is limited. Only $249 per person with lunch included both days. 

Location: Captain Chris Yacht Services,  2845 Citrus Place, Vero Beach FL 32968
