Our new Boat Plumbing, Heating and Engine Installation course is a major expansion of the plumbing section of our old Electric and plumbing course following feedback from our students who wanted a lot more coverage.
Aimed at those people who are keen to do some refitting work or a complete fit out of a sail-away the course offers a practical introduction to the design, materials, tools and techniques of projects that are within the reach of people who have little hands on experience of this type of work.
