Plumbing, Heating and Engine Installation

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.

The course offers a practical introduction to all the skills necessary to design and install all of the plumbing, heating and engine installation on a narrowboat. Whenever possible we spend a high proportion of the course “on the tools” giving students a chance to improve their skills.

Because we know that a course like this is only the beginning of a self build we encourage students to contact their instructor afterwards when they are actually in the build if the have any questions or need advice.

This course is another one of our Boat Building suite of courses which include:  Boat Fitting 1Boat Fitting 2 , and  Boat Electric Systems (Design and Installation).

This course can be booked individually, however if you book two or more courses at the same time they attract a significant discount.
