A couple of years ago I met shipwright Laurence Burgin when he was doing some work on my boat. Laurence is a shipwright with more than 20 years experience on a wide variety of vessels. He also teaches marine diesel engine maintenance for beginners at yacht clubs around Sydney.
I attended one of Laurence’s marine diesel maintenance courses and the knowledge I gained has enabled me to do much of the regular engine maintenance on my boat myself. I still get the service guy from the engine manufacturer to do some of the more complex maintenance but with what I can now do myself I’ve saved thousands of dollars in maintenance costs.
More importantly, I have confidence that I can handle an engine emergency out on the water!
Laurence’s marine diesel engine course is now available as a downloadable e-book through Amazon.
