I'll have to go to the gym a bit more before I'll be able to take my four stroke

Did this course last week with Dave.Was 80 well spent I think.Their Intermediate power boat course is 150 which is loads cheaper than others I have seen.
After the outboard course I can now winterise & service my own engine, albeit on a basic level.

Tim,

As Jon said it was a good course.

The course started dead on 9, and finished at around 17:15, with only a very short break for lunch and coffee. The course covered changing the following things impeller, engine oil, thermostat, gear box oil, spark plugs and quite a few other bits and pieces which I cant remember.

We got given a box full of new parts which we had to put on. You could either work on a four stroke or two storke engine. The people working on the two stroke engines could also take a part the carb. The four stroke engine that Jon and I worked on was still on the back of one of the Universitys Ribs, which had obviously been wheeled in ready for us to service it, so if you see a university rib with a four stroke on the back unable to start, or puffing out black smoke you know why!!!

The guy who took the course was very good, and seemed to know everything there was to know about engines, he had been in the business for years.

Dave
It was well worth the money.
