Diesel Engine Course – Sat 25th March

Our next diesel engine course will be running on Saturday 25th March 2017.  The cost of the course is £69 which includes the RYA pack.  This course is not an in depth instruction on diesel engines requiring an existing knowledge of diesel engines but is a bit of a ‘Janet and John’ teaching regarding some basic maintenance and fault finding techniques.  Many calls to the RNLI are from yachts with mechanical failure and in many cases their time and your stress can be relieved with a little knowledge of some simple common problems.  It’s suitable for novices so why not have a go.  It’s held in our classroom at Hamble and uses the diesel engine recovered from one of our old yachts.
