Re: Looking for marine systems training school

Had a great experience with the Mack Boring 1-day class - they did a custom version here at the Naval Academy specifically for the Yanmar 4JH that was installed in the new Navy 44 sailboats. Frankly we got just as much value from the mechanic in Oriental NC who did the 1,000 hour service on the Yanmar on our own boat, and encouraged us to look over his shoulders and take notes while he did the work. I'd offer his name, PM me if you want, but he's a long way from Ithaca, NY.

Funny side note: after I wrote my blog post on learning to rebuild the carburetor on our outboard (Life Afloat Archives: Pink Jobs and Blue Jobs) I've been getting pop-up ads for "Marine Mechanics" schools. Gotta clean out my cookies!
