The statics from the Dutch lifeboatservice KNRM are clear: about 1 of 3 sorties are due to leisureboaters with minor engine issues. With a bit of knowledge, limited tools and a bit of skill many of the issues can be repaired. During this one day training you learn to fix a impeller waterpump, tighten a slipping fan belt, replace a saturated fuel filter and much more.
