Description

The RNLI tell us that one of the main reasons for lifeboat call outs to both sailing and powerboats is machinery failure. Completing this course should help you avoid becoming another statistic.

The aim of this one day course is to give you an awareness of the main systems of a marine diesel engine and the ability to take simple measures to prevent you breaking down at sea, but if you do have mechanical problems this course will teach you how to go about getting started again.

The course is equally valuable to the sailor with an auxiliary diesel and the motor cruising enthusiast. Don‚t worry if you have no knowledge of engines or mechanical ability - you will be surprised how straight forward most of the checks and adjustments are.
