Nothing is worse than having equipment or systems fail on a boating trip. Sure, you can call a mechanic for help, but you might hear that it will take a week before a mechanic can come to your boat. Mike will take you through the system the Waggoner Guide uses for our boats and our flotilla members. It starts with good preparation in the pre-season with preventative maintenance, for which we will give you a checklist. Whether it’s carrying the right spare parts or increasing your own knowledge, there’s a lot that can be done to solve problems yourself or save time when the mechanic arrives.

Based on Mike’s experience as a marine mechanic, and as a Department Head for Marine Technology, Mike will take the class through proven, check-list based techniques for troubleshooting a diesel engine and the electrical systems on a boat. He will also cover water and waste systems. This course will better prepare you to deal with boat problems that unfortunately happen sooner or later. After this 3-hour class you will be much more knowledgeable about topics such as daily engine room checks, early warning signs, changing oil and filters, monitoring electrical systems, tools, basic wiring and so much more!
