July Introduction to Boat Systems Seminar

A happy boy in his engine room. Look at all the space. Ask Captain Chris so you can be happy in your own engine room.

LIVE and In-Person Seminars

Join us in Vero Beach Florida on MONDAY July 26 & TUESDAY July 27, 2021 for our two day Seminar Introduction to Boat Systems Maintained By YOU The Boat Owner. Optional Boatyard Tour Sunday morning July 25, 2021.

Captain Chris will take the mystery out of maintenance in our Introduction to Boat Systems Seminar. 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!

What people are saying about Captain Chris’s seminars:

  • An excellent learning opportunity. It was an all around great program: content, all the “props” (and not just propulsion props) the explanations, the opportunity to ask questions, the people and of course the food. You guys are an awesome team!! I’m glad I know you both! – Dan
  • These rather easy to do projects can be learned by the average boater or at the very least they can talk the same language to their mechanic if they don’t want to get their hands dirty.  Very well priced for all that you get. This is a great idea! – Brian W
