9:00 AM Keeping it Alive: Troubleshooting Marine Systems While Cruising - 3 hours (9am-Noon) $39
Michael Beemer Stage #7 Concourse Level
REGISTER
Friday, January 26th, 9:00 AM Modern cruising boats have numerous systems that we rely on every day. While these systems are remarkably reliable they are also increasingly complex. The corrosive salt water marine environment, constant motion, and seasonal use of boats constantly threaten our boat’s systems. In some of the remote cruising areas along the Inside Passage you may be unable to summon a mechanic or call for help. How do we keep these critical systems alive? This course goes beyond the basics in understanding how to find and fix problems aboard a vessel. Topics will include: Knowing, understanding & maintaining critical systems for the safety and comfort of the captain and crew. Planning what to check, inspect, and look for to prevent break-downs while passage making. Techniques for troubleshooting systems. Hands-on activities to learn important lessons about using a multi-meter for troubleshooting. Practical tips for temporary repairs of key systems. We’ll end this session with a checklist of proven maintenance items you will want on your boat that will help you “Keep it Alive” during your cruise.
