We will be exhibiting at Trawler Fest Baltimore September 25th-28th 2014. We will be participating in the new format of TrawlerFest University’s course ” EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT DIESEL ENGINES Presented by Nigel Calder & Steve Zimmerman on September 24th as well as presenting “VESSEL MAINTENANCE IS MORE THAN OIL CHANGES” on September 25th.
This two-day course is led by PassageMaker Technical Editor Nigel Calder, who wrote bible of cruising propulsion, “Marine Diesel Engines.” Partnering with Calder is Steve Zimmerman, owner of boatyards in Maryland, Virginia and North Carolina, as well as representatives from WheelHouse Technologies, Yanmar, Cummins and Volvo who will bring their engines for hands-on training. Topics covered will include emergency repairs, repowering, maintenance, warranty and gensets. The information imparted is not only essential for successful cruising, but will also enable attendees to make money-saving decisions.
Craig Parkhurst of Wheelhouse Technologies discusses the various maintenance approaches—run-to-failure, preventative and predictive—and describes how to work smarter not harder to maintain your vessel. He will share his thinking on equipment failure modes and spare parts.
