Re: Basic Diesel Course

If no convenient course is available, hiring a qualified mechanic to teach you on your own boat is not a bad idea and would likely cost no more than a course.

Asking experienced people on the dock is an absolute no-no as you do not have the knowledge to discriminate between someone who knows what he is doing and the usual "dock expert know it all".

Taking a course is best as the instructor is more likely to know what he's doing and if he has done it for a while he will also have a method and order down pat which is very important. Being able to do it is one thing, teaching it is a different skill.
