Repairs & Maintenance Courses
Learn To Repair And Maintain Your Own Kayak Or Small Boat
Smash & Bash Kayak Repair Workshop (1 day) DIY fibreglass repairs Learn how to repair your own fibreglass boat, dinghy or kayak. First we smash ‘em up then you’ll learn how to make them as good as new again! From how to transport your kayak safely to and from the water, to how they are made, we will provide you with the skills to weld together a polyethylene kayak, or produce effective and strong GRP repairs to composite kayaks. As well as looking into what to take when afloat to get you back home safe & sound!
RYA Diesel Engine Maintenance (1 or 2 days) This course follows the RYA syllabus and looks into basic fault finding and repairs to common problems while afloat. Very much a practical course, we will first look into the theoretical aspects and then have the opportunity to practice on the two very different engines and various parts which I provide. A slightly longer and more relaxed course can be programmed over two days and will cover in addition to the RYA syllabus, the maintenance and repair to small outboard motors in particular the very popular HONDA 2.3hp. Both the above courses, along with the British Canoeing navigation courses, are ideal winter events for clubs and or centres.
