  • SHAFT SEAL - traditional and dripless designs
  • BLACK WATER SYSTEMS - from the head to the holding tank including macerators

What people are saying about Captain Chrisís seminars:

  • An excellent learning opportunity. It was an all around great program: content, all the "props" (and not just propulsion props) the explanations, the opportunity to ask questions, the people and of course the food. You guys are an awesome team!! I'm glad I know you both!
  • These rather easy to do projects can be learned by the average boater or at the very least they can talk the same language to their mechanic if they don't want to get their hands dirty. †Very well priced for all that you get. This is a great idea! -Brian W
  • Linda and I want to preregister for your class, especially if it is in Vero or close by. We will make a vacation out of it. We learned so much from you guys, but still have much more to learn and I think the price is well worth while.-Ken H.
