TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 24th

Everything You Need To Know About Diesel Engines

With Nigel Calder, Steve Zimmerman
8:30 a.m.-5 p.m.
$495. (Limit: 36. Not included in VIP Pass)
(Day 1 of 2, continues Wednesday)

This is not the only diesel engine course for boaters, but it is the only diesel engine course for boaters taught by renown author/researcher Nigel Calder and veteran boatbuilder and yard operator Steve Zimmerman. Calder is PassageMaker magazine’s technical editor, while Zimmerman writes a regular column called “Troubleshooter.” It is also worthy of note that unlike most other engine instructors both Calder and Zimmerman are real-deal cruisers, who bring this perspective to the curriculum. This two-day session combines classroom time with hands-on engine time in the shop. It also combines theory and practical troubleshooting instruction, and it does so with a touch of humor to keep things lively.
LUNCH: Attendees will be provided box lunches both days.
PARTY/CEREMONY: Attendees and spouses are welcome to a “graduation” party after Wednesday’s session, during which certificates of completion will be awarded, and a good time will be had. In some cases, the certificate of completion may help attendees save money on their boat insurance.

The Other Loop: The Down East Circle
With Steve Zimmerman
8:30-10:30 a.m.
$65
While lesser known than the Great Loop, the Down East Circle offers spectacular scenery and a full range of waterways. The trip begins in the Hudson River, into the Erie canal, out the Oswego and into Lake Ontario and the beautiful Thousand Islands region. Following the St. Lawrence brings you to the French speaking cities of Montreal and Quebec. After exploring the breathtaking Saquennay Fjord you leave the St. Lawrence River as it widens into a Gulf. Prince Edward Island, the Magdalen Islands, and Cape Breton offer spectacular cruising grounds including the famous Lake Bras D’Or. The eastern seaboard of Nova Scotia provides a wide range of anchorages and history, including Halifax and Lunenburg. Veteran boatbuilder and cruiser Steve Zimmerman will share his itinerary, recommendations, and lessons learned, along with jaw dropping photographs.

Water World
With Capt. Bob Arrington
8:30-10:30 a.m.
$65
It’s about the water in your boat, not the water your boat is in! Fresh water, soft water, salt water, reverse osmosis water, deionized water—what do we do with all of these types of water in our boat? Managing and keeping a boats water system in a healthy condition can be a challenge. Spend two hours with Bob Arrington as he breaks down the chemistry in different types of water and how to keep your water tanks fresh and usable all the times. Bob will review different types of water softeners available and the benefits of using them in your freshwater tank. Choices for on-board water filtration systems will be discussed. There will be an in-depth review of reverse osmosis (RO) water makers, how to select, size and maintain one. Learn the benefits of having deionized water on board and how it can help maintain your boat.

How to Keep Love Alive While Cruising 
With captains Chris & Alyse Caldwell
10:45 a.m.-12:30 p.m.
$65

Do you want to “live the dream” and still love each other? Of course you do. Then both of you must be part of the cruising process. Presenters Chris and Alyse Caldwell, both captains, are a happy cruising couple who have traveled together for 35-plus years, living aboard their 44-foot trawler full-time for a 15-year stretch with no land base and no car. They will share tips on how to approach this adventure as a team project. To live and work together aboard a cruising boat you need to find your comfort zone and try to understand each person’s role aboard. True, you can only have one captain at a time but if you each have a 50-percent vote on most things then there’s a good chance you’ll achieve 100-percent teamwork. 

Nautical Know-How: Rules of the Road & Essential Knots
With Bob Sweet
10:45 a.m.-12:30 p.m.
$65

Half the course is about law and custom; the other half is about the mechanics of securing your boat. These topics are not as disparate as it may seem at first glance. A solid familiarity with both is absolutely essential to enjoy your time on the water safely. Marine author/illustrator Bob Sweet is your instructor. Sweet will use illustrations to make learning easier and, for the knot portion, attendees will learn with actual lines and cleats as well.

Bad News for the Great Loop? What To Expect. Workarounds.
With Kim Russo & veteran loopers.
1:30-5:30 p.m.
130

Have you heard the bad news? Five key locks along the Great Loop will be closed for repairs for four months in 2020. Kim Russo, executive director of the America’s Great Loop Cruisers’ Association, will give a detailed briefing about the status of the project and how to create a cruising strategy to deal with this temporary closure. In case you’ve only just tuned in, boaters who circumnavigate the East Coast of U.S., using the Hudson River, Erie Canal, Great Lakes, Mississippi River and Intracoastal Waterway are called “Loopers” for having completed “The Great Loop.” Russo’s presentation will include plenty of time to answer questions. She will also address which boats are most suitable and how to budget.

Women’s Roundtable (All-women panel takes questions from all-female audience.)
With Becky Fickett, Jill Sechez, Alyse Caldwell, Priscilla Travis and Mary Ann Degraw
1:30-3:30 p.m.
$65.

Each of our panelists have extensive cruising experience, but with distinctly different experiences. This seminar is for women who think they may want to go cruising or who have only recently entered into the cruising lifestyle and have a wide range of questions best answered by other women, and, alas, without any men in the room.

WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 25th

Everything You Need To Know About Diesel Engines
With Nigel Calder & Steve Zimmerman
8:30 a.m.-5 p.m.
(Day 2, continued from Tuesday)

Boat Handling Illustrated
With Bob Sweet
8:30 a.m.-noon
$130.
Prerequisite for Boat Handling on the Water

This course, combined with “Boat Handling on the Water” will develop skills in close quarters maneuvering and docking, not to mention the confidence gained from having been taught by some of the very best instructors in the business. Bob Sweet is the author of several marine titles including Powerboat Handling Illustrated and The Instant Handbook of Boat Handling, Navigation and Seamanship. Wednesday morning is all class time followed by six on-the-water sessions in the afternoon and on Thursday and Friday. (SEPARATE REGISTRATION REQUIRED). The certificate of completion awarded to attendees may help save some money on their boat insurance.

Cruising Simply & Cheaply
With Rudy & Jill Sechez
8:30-10:30 a.m.
$65

“Had Thoreau been a mariner instead of a naturalist, and had he built a boat instead of a cabin, it would not take much imagination to conclude that he might have built something a lot like Briney Bug. Meet Rudy and Jill Sechez, mariners and philosophers of the 21st century who imagined, designed, built, and now live aboard a 34-foot vessel that is quite unlike any other cruising powerboat.” That’s how one author described the instructors for “Cruising Simply & Cheaply.” Everyone talks about the virtues of simplicity on the water, but almost no one walks the walk as genuinely as this cruising couple, spiritual heirs to the famed sailing duo Lynn and Larry Pardey. The idea behind this seminar is not to convert you into comfort-shunning primitivists, just to spark a conversation and provide ideas that can save you money and maybe…just maybe…help make cruising more enjoyable.

Cruising the Intracoastal Waterway
With captains Chris and Alyse Caldwell
10:45 a.m.-12:30 p.m.
$65

Heading south for the winter? This seminar will get you where you want to go. Captains Chris & Alyse Caldwell can help you plot your course along the Atlantic Intracoastal Waterway from the Chesapeake Bay through mile marker zero in Norfolk, Va., all the way to the Florida Keys. Learn a few tips to keep you in the deeper channel and off the sandbars from experienced cruisers who traveled the route in many different size trawlers- with as deep as a seven-foot draft. There are details to explore such as tide, currents and drawbridges that are specific to cruising the Atlantic coast. Here’s a peek at where you may travel when it’s your turn to live the dream.

Hidden Florida (Including the Mini-Loop & St. Johns River)
With Ken & Becky Fickett and Peter Swanson
1:30-3:30 p.m.
$65

Learn about an around-Florida adventure that involves circumnavigating the lower part of the state via the Okeechobee Waterway and Florida’s Ten Thousand Islands. Boatbuilder, Florida native and all-around raconteur, Ken Fickett you on a journey that encompasses many of Florida’s remaining wild and eccentric places. He will be joined Peter Swanson of TrawlerFest, who lives and cruises on Florida’s St. John’s River and calls is a “Time machine that takes you to Old Florida.”

Weather Tips: 20 Facts About Marine Weather You Should Know But Probably Don’t
With Chris Parker
1:30-3:30 p.m.
$65

Veteran marine forecaster Chris Parker learned these 20 tips through decades of observation, much of it while cruising. These tips include how to observe the texture of clouds to gauge whether a thunderstorm is developing, understanding how wind parallels coastline, understanding why wind generally weakens as its direction “backs,” and what it means when it strengthens instead. (Hint: Bad things can happen.)

Boat Buyer's Survival Guide (Part 1)
With Steve Zimmerman, Ken Fickett

8:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m.

$260
(Day 1 of 2, continues Friday)

Even when it goes well, buying a boat can be a stressful process. The idea behind this eight-hour seminar is to arm buyers with the information they need to minimize frustration and unnecessary expense. There are six “team teach” instructors, with individual presentations and a group panel session at the end of each morning. On Day One, the seminar leads off with the first decision a prospective buyer of a cruising boat must make. That is, what kind of cruiser you plan to be and therefore which hull design, because, as boatbuilder Steve Zimmerman will argue, hull form matters. Then boatbuilder Ken Fickett will explain fiberglass boat construction, coring and how to discern between good and bad. Metal boat builders John Clayman of Seaton Yachts and Ron Cleringa of the Burger Boat Company explain metal boat construction and its advantages and disadvantages, and address custom boat building in general. 

Troubleshooting Electronics (as Opposed to Your Electrical System)
With Eric Kunz
8:30-10:30 a.m.
$65

First of all, we said “electronics” not “electrical.” This new seminar will prove that when marine electronics fail there are remedies available to a boater other than surrender and a telephone call to the technician. Eric Kunz, senior product manager for Furuno, takes a non-partisan look at how to troubleshoot hardware, systems and NMEA 0183 and 2000 networks using a meter and common sense. As a teaching aid Kunz will bring to class a networked system in miniature to play with. This is one of those seminars that can end up saving you more than the price of admission.

Weather and Forecast Resources
With Chris Parker
8:30-10:30 a.m.
$65

Learn the best weather apps and how to access them from a variety of devices. Veteran weather router Chris Parker details which weather products (and which parameters) are essential and how to access them via computer, mobile devices and other hardware. You’ll get a look at these apps and websites in real-time so you can compare options. Certificate of completion.

Anchor as if Your Life Depended on It
With Rudy & Jill Sechez
10:45 a.m.-12:30 p.m.
$65

Anchoring sounds easy: Stop forward motion, lower the anchor, back off, set the anchor, let out enough scope, then belay the rode and maybe attach a snubber, too. But, if this is all there is to anchoring, why do so many crews have trouble setting their anchors and why do so many boats drag or break free? As liveaboards, cruisers, and delivery crew for 20-plus years, Rudy and Jill Sechez have gained wide-ranging experience, including anchoring through numerous storms and hurricanes. This course is a distillation of these experiences as presented in their book “Anchoring: A Ground Tackler’s Apprentice.” By the time you’ve sat through this seminar, you’ll probably be seriously thinking about upsizing your gear. Certificate of completion.

Great Loop Boats, Great for Bluewater, Too
With Capt. John Clayman
10:45 a.m.-12:30 p.m.
$65

Would-be cruisers often ask, “What do I need to look for in a boat for The Great Loop,” as if maybe they didn’t intent to cruise anywhere else. And maybe some do not. The Loop is a magnificent adventure, usually with land to starboard and port, but there are plenty of boats that do a great job on inland waters that can also go offshore and even cross an ocean. The Great Loop is a magnificent adventure in and of itself, but there are affordable boats that can do both the Erie Canal and the Atlantic Ocean in comfort and safety. John Clayman, president of Seaton Yachts with tens of thousands of ocean miles under his belt, will review the particular requirements for Great Looping and for more strenuous cruising. He will provide examples of dual-purpose vessels for every budget. Donning his yacht broker cap, Clayman will also discuss how to find and purchase the best boat for your needs. There will be ample time to respond to questions about design, construction, surveys and the purchase process.

The Connected Boat
With Capt. Bob Arrington
1:30-3:30 p.m.
$65

Most boating knowledge and equipment is intended to keep boaters safe while they are using their boat. With the exception of lines, fenders, batteries and bilge pumps, there are very few items intended to keep the boat safe while you’re away from it. Now with IOT (Internet of Things) technology, you have the ability to monitor the condition of your boat, even when you are away from it. Join Bob Arrington, an experienced cruiser, writer and educator, as he takes you through “The Connected Boat”. You will be introduced to the world of smart device applications which integrate all of a boat’s systems into one intuitive interface, connecting you with your boat anywhere, any time. You will learn the differences in wired versus wireless sensors, and systems using cellular connectivity compared to satellite networks. You have apps that connect you to your house and your car, join us as we explore the latest available technologies to stay connected to your boat as well.

Old School Navigation
With Bob Sweet
1:00-3:00 p.m.
$65

Like it or not, getting from here to there in a boat involves some basic navigation skills. GPS tells you where you are and the direction to your next waypoint, but it doesn’t tell you if it’s safe to go that way. You are the navigator, not the gadget. Come learn the basics from the guy who wrote the book on navigation. You’ll be a better and safer navigator with your GPS and chartplotter, and more confident. Sweet’s book is used by the Coast Guard Auxiliary the U.S. Power Squadrons and others for their navigation courses. You will get some hands on, learn some really handy tricks, and get an overview of how they used to do it, including a taste of celestial navigation.

Boat Buyers Survival Guide (Part 2)
8:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m.
(Day 2, continued from Thursday.)

On Day Two, Vin Petrella, executive direction of the Association of Yacht Sales Professionals, will discuss how to choose the right yacht broker and the elements of a good sales contract. Then experts will address financing and insurance. Topics will include navigation territories, coverages, claims liability coverages, international medical coverage, north/south restrictions, named windstorm deductibles and the differences between the agreed value and actual cash value policies. Maritime Attorney Todd Lochner then cautions buyers on the intricacies of local tax laws for East Coast cruisers.

Care & Maintenance of the Cruising Powerboat
With Steve Zimmerman
8:30 a.m.-noon.
$130

From keel to cabin top and seacocks to sealants, this class will provide in depth instruction on how to maintain your boat. This seminar will cover hauling, bottom paints, blister repairs, inspecting and maintaining underwater hardware, preventing damage to cored hulls and decks, gelcoat maintenance, installing and re-bedding deck hardware, coating options for exterior wood, teak deck maintenance and annual maintenance tasks.

Full Displacement: The Serious Choice for Comfortable Cruising
With Larry Polster
8:30-10:30 a.m.
$65

Full-displacement, semi-displacement, planing or multi-hull—with four main hull forms and so many different trawler-style boats available today, boat buyers need clarity. Larry Polster, vice-president of Kadey-Krogen Yachts, explains the advantages of a full-displacement vessel and argues that this hull is the best option for comfortable cruising. Whether you plan to do the Great Loop, cruise the Bahamas, Caribbean or the world, this seminar is for you. A lifelong boater with more than 45 years on the water in a variety of vessels, Polster will share his personal experiences on vessels from 30 to 60 feet, including his recent experience on his new Krogen 50 Open.

Multi-Function Displays, Hands On (Option One of Two)
With Eric Kunz
10:45 a.m.-12:30 p.m.
$65

This seminar (and another on Saturday) is designed to show you how to become proficient at electronic navigation--six working MFDs, 18 students with three per screen. Our instructor has spent an entire career developing marine electronics for Furuno. But this seminar is not about one brand; it’s about what all brands share in common, which is a lot. It’s an open secret that when one manufacturer introduces an innovative feature, that idea finds its way into the competition’s products pretty quickly, however different the interpretation may be. Certificate of completion.

Cruisers Perspectives: A Town Hall Meeting
With Bruce Kessler, Steve Zimmerman, Eric Kunz, Chris Parker, John Clayman, Ken Fickett, Rudy Sechez and Dylan Bailey. Moderated by Jeff Merrill, CPYB.
2-4 p.m.
$65.

In this “town hall” event, our panel of veteran cruisers will field audience questions on a wide-range of topics, sea stories always resulting. Circumnavigator Bruce Kessler can discuss what it’s like to spend months and months treading blue water. Rudy Sechez built is own “sail assisted troller” and co-authored an anchoring guide. Jeff Merrill, the moderator, is a yacht broker, author and trawler specialist with thousands of cruising miles with clients. Surveyor Dylan Bailey is a veteran cruiser who learned to build boats with his father. Ken Fickett has been building boats since the 1970s—more than 1,200 of them—and been all over the place in them. John Clayman is a prominent East Coast yacht broker, cruiser, racer and all around boat guy. Steve Zimmerman can discuss repairs and boatyards from the point of view of both a cruiser and boatyard owner. Chris Parker, a veteran marine weather router, spent more than 20 years cruising the East Coast and the islands.

SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 28th

Survival at Sea
With Capt. Bob Arrington
8:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m.
$130

When all of your boating goes according to plan, your flares and life jackets are of no use to you, your EPIRB and life raft just take up space aboard the boat. But life and our pursuits within it have a way of diverting from the plan, so experience tells us the emergency equipment we keep on our boats is worth carrying. Yet when most boaters free their lines and head for open water, they do so in a mild state of denial, an innocent but dangerous unwillingness to admit something could go wrong. Capt. Bob Arrington is a veteran cruiser and long-time TrawlerFest instructor, and he says that surviving an emergency aboard your boat is more than just having the latest safety equipment, it is a state of mind, a willingness to plan for “what if”, and an unwillingness to become a statistic. Join Arrington and our emergency equipment specialists as we review the latest in safety equipment and how to use it correctly.

SAS Takeaways:

  • Most effective methods of communication in rescue situations.
  • Differences in units of latitude & longitude, and how to communicate them accurately.
  • Understanding the differences in signal flares (SOLAS - Safety of Life at Sea).
  • Complete understanding of electronic rescue signal devices like EPIRB, PLB’s, personal AIS transmitters and satellite devices.
  • Differences in and use of storm drogues and sea anchors.
  • Ditch bag set up.
  • Description and use of emergency dewatering pumps.
  • Life raft styles, placement and use

What To Look For Before You Call a Surveyor
With Dylan Bailey
8:30-10:30 a.m.
$65

So, you want to buy a boat? Boatbuilder, cruiser and ace-surveyor Dylan Bailey explains what you should look for before making an offer and hiring a marine surveyor. A dream of the perfect cruising boat can be crushed when its surveyed, but some of those deal-killers could have been detected early were it not for the fact that buying a boat is rarely a rational decision; we are often lead by our hearts. Bailey explains the ways in which buyers can slow down and take a look at the boat with the rose-colored glasses off. He will cover how to inspect hoses, valves, wiring mistakes, and signs of structural damage. There will be many photos of examples of what to look for. Attendees will be given a check list to follow for their inspection.

Dial-In Your Trawler
With Jeff Merrill, CPYB
8:30-10:30 a.m.
$65

Over the years and through his experiences on hundreds of trawlers, yacht broker Jeff Merrill has amassed a collection of “good ideas” and “best practices” that trawler owners are using to better monitor their vessels. These simple and effective techniques apply to most power cruising boats. Tricks of the trade and helpful reminders will help take some of the guesswork out of tracking various systems and equipment on board your trawler. Little details like reference marks for needles on analog gauges, a dry-erase board in your engine room, anchor chain marking and many other common-sense tips make this an engaging and informative seminar that you won’t want to miss. Merrill will share photos of these ideas and also discuss an assortment of products that you should consider using on your trawler that will not only make your life more enjoyable but may also favorably affect your eventual resale value.

Integrating Solar Panels & New Tech Batteries
With David DiQuinzio
10:45 a.m. -12:30 p.m.
$65

We’ve reached a tipping point with advances in solar technology coinciding with reliable lithium storage. Solar system designer David DiQuinzio discusses the advantages of auxiliary solar power for cruising vessels. He will provide advice on how to size your solar bank, differences in types and brands of panel, installation considerations and maintenance. He will also discuss lithium storage and integrating these new technologies with a vessel's existing generators and alternators. He will also share a little-known fact—the federal government will help pay for your installation.

Multi-Function Displays, Hands On (Option Two of Two)
With Eric Kunz
10:45 a.m.-12:30 p.m.
$65

This seminar (and another on Friday) is designed to show you how to become proficient at electronic navigation--six working MFDs, 18 students with three per screen. Our instructor has spent an entire career developing marine electronics for Furuno. But this seminar is not about one brand; it’s about what all brands share in common, which is a lot. It’s an open secret that when one manufacturer introduces an innovative feature, that idea finds its way into the competition’s products pretty quickly, however different the interpretation may be. Certificate of completion.

Offshore Essentials
With Jeff Merrill, CPYB
1:30-5 p.m.
$130

Traveling between ports requires understanding and knowledge of some fundamental skills to ensure a safe trip. This two-morning course is designed to be both an introduction and a refresher for owner operators and their crew. Yacht broker and all-around boat guy, Jeff Merrill will cover basics of weather forecasting, route planning, watch standing, engine room checks, pilothouse navigation/electronics operations, and much more. If you are interested in transiting between sea ports for overnight passages on your trawler this course will review the essential preparations required. Merrill has logged more than 14,000 miles offshore on trawlers and has spent the majority of that time training with clients on systems teaching them how to manage and operate their boats. His talk includes photos and illustrations and examples of checklists. Certificate of completion.
