Cruisers college will help you understand your diesel engine and the equipment you rely on when out exploring on your boat. It’s often overwhelming when trying to figure out all that happens in an engine space, but it’s essential for safe, reliable and enjoyable time on the water. Marine technicians have the benefit of being in many engine spaces and understanding the many different scenarios that happen below decks. We have a great technician, with lots of experience, that will take you through the engine space and pass along the many tips she has learned.
- Learn all about daily engine room checks.
- Learn ‘early warning signs.’
- Learn how to change fuel filters and bleed a diesel engine.
- Inspection of shafts, rudders, and other often overlooked items.
