Has anyone else attended any of these courses? Worthwhile?

I took the basic and intermediate diesel courses there, and have found them VERY useful.

Final problem: your team is presented with a sabotaged diesel. Make it run.

VERY useful!

Thanks again for the heads up; your advice paid off.

I don't know what he sold it for, but I know the guy he sold it to.

The boat is now named TODA.

The new owner said that some of the wiring that Calder did (re-did?) in the boat was kind of funky but worked.

Umm... it was several years ago, so don't remember exact details now. There was an air problem, an electrical problem, and a fuel problem... on each of the two diesels (two teams of 3 people, each, that particular session).

So just finding and solving one problem didn't get 'er done, no joy until each would start -- and run.

The local library has limited offerings.

Online is not the most favorable way to start the learning process (no hands on) but it may be the only option.

I want to have at least some knowledge before I start sniffing around the local marine service shops and bugging skippers, so...
Anyone know of some good online tutorials/videos or other resources?


Thanks in advance.
A good and quite new book are from The Royal Yacht Association in UK.
Go to RYA shop, and look for Diesel Engines, a clear sound of all marinediesel matters, with many usefull pict. Price:17.99 eng.pound.
can strongly recommend this easy understandable book.
Good luck.
