Passengers:
Crew: 25

Seminar:              MARINE ENGINE CARE SEMINAR

Where:                 RANSA Building, New Beach Road, Darling Point (where we have the Christmas Party and SWD Inductions)

Date:                   Tuesday 28th of March 2017

Time:                   1800 to 2100 / 6.00 pm to 9.00 pm

We are holding a marine engine care seminar at RANSA premises in New Beach Road.  The seminar will cover care and maintenance of engines, gear boxes and propellers.  The focus will be on the equipment on SWD boats namely Yanmar equipment.  Our presenter Ian Mills is the National Marine Products Manager for Power Equipment, the Australian agents for Yanmar.  Ian has inspected our boats in preparation for the seminar, so his advice on care for engines will be up a to date and accurate.  It is important that we get names as soon as possible as Ian anticipates that each participant will receive a “show bag”.  Ian will also have a cut away engine on site so that we all can see the inner working of what we do for “pre sailing engine checks”. 

You are invited to attend this seminar so please respond early so that we can be prepared for an entertaining day.
