Course knowledge is passed on from our expert team, combined with hands-on training and ‘tricks of the trade’ to give you the understanding and confidence to maintain your own engine at your berth or mooring, or even how to try and fix your engine if something goes wrong whilst out on the water. The course is designed for owners of petrol powered two and four stroke outboard engines found on motor cruisers, fishing boats, workboats or sailing yachts that enjoy many of our local harbours or that head further out to sea.
