Boat Maintenance for Powerboats & Sailboats
Boat Maintenance is something that every boat owner must come to grips with. Aside from any manufacturer's claims, there is no such thing as a maintenance-free boat, so it behooves the boater to know as much as possible, because there are no plumbers at sea!
This program deals with the basics that any boatowner can deal with and avoid the usually high cost involved with the hiring of a local boat repair person.
Starting right at the bottom, you are shown proper care of the thru-hull fittings and on to preventing.electrolysis, marine head problems, Y-valve lubrication, flapper and joker valves, anti-siphon loops, and completely using a kit to rebuild a marine head.
Also covered are holding tanks, re-building impeller and diaphragm water pumps, care of marine batteries, bilge & engine maintenance (diesel or gas), and many misc. areas like lifelines, stanchions, regulators, hose clamps, filters, strainers, emergency bilge pumps and how to properly varnish.
This DVD pays for itself over and over, every time you use it to do something yourself, instead of hiring someone. It can also educate you so that anyone you hire cannot pull the wool (or fiberglass) over your eyes when telling you what's wrong with your boat.
