The diesel engine is a critically important piece of safety equipment aboard any cruising boat. Tech guru Nigel Calder, author of the best-selling Marine Diesel Engines (now in its third edition and used as a textbook in numerous diesel classes) brings his unique brand of humor to a seminar for boat owners, both power and sail, that want to get the most out of their time on the water. Distinguishing between contemporary and older diesel engines, Calder details often-overlooked critical installation issues, and takes a careful look at fuel, oil, cooling, airflow, and powertrain systems. He describes in detail all normal maintenance procedures together with basic troubleshooting techniques for common diesel engine problems. He defines what the untrained boat owner can reasonably be expected to do and what should not be attempted. You will come away from this seminar with an enhanced understanding of your engine and the confidence to carry out routine maintenance, which alone will save you the price of admission. No previous experience is required.
