The DVDs give owners and enthusiasts the detailed knowledge and confidence they need to tackle many of the tasks that they have probably considered too daunting to even think about undertaking themselves.

They give the viewer the chance to literally sit on the shoulder of a range of top quality experts whilst they skilfully undertake tasks such as a full osmosis treatment, a marine diesel engine strip down and rebuild and a hydraulic marine gearbox strip down and rebuild, filmed step by step right down to the last nut and bolt.
Each demonstration is carried out in real time and packed full of essential tips and professional shortcuts, which demystify often misunderstood procedures.
The detail and quality of advice and guidance means that for the first time, boat owners will have the confidence to tackle jobs they have previously had to pay a great deal of money for simply because in the past they wouldn’t know where to start.
