     Description: Marine Diesel Maintenance Training

    Sorry, now fully subscribed - If there is sufficient interest I'll run a second course.

    Organiser:  Dick Beddoe         

    I am going to run a single day marine diesel maintenance course on 23rd February.  The aim is to get members who are new to sailing familiar with one of the most important bits of a yacht, its engine.

    Marine diesels are extremely reliable but there are a few "gotchas" that must be understood, and the purpose of this day is to explain these basics. 

    The course will be loosely based on the RYA Diesel maintenance book.  The subjects I propose to include are as follows:-

    • Basic diesel principles
    • Direct drives and sail-drives
    • The cooling system including direct and indirect cooling systems, filters & corrosion
    • Lubrication system with oil & filter changing, including gearbox
    • Fuel system for the low pressure and high pressure circuits
    • Cables & Connections
    • Fault finding and resolution

    To help in this the club owns a small marine diesel for the practical hands-on work.  This means we need to keep the numbers relatively low, say around 6 attendees so that everyone gets "a go" at wielding a spanner!

    To keep costs to a minimum we will run this at my home in the (heated) garage.  The course will comprise presentations and practical exercises.

    If you wish to attend the course could you please register

    As we do not have the cost of a hall hire we are able to keep costs very low.  So we have set course cost to £10.  The lunch and coffee expenses will be deducted and the balance will go into club funds.
