There are significant differences between coastal sailboats and those that venture offshore.  The process of upgrading your coastal boat to be safe and functional on long offshore passages can be daunting.  Which upgrades are essential and which are just nice to have or can be deferred?

This one day workshop with Norm & Beth Cooper breaks down the boat preparation process to each area of the boat ranging from below the water line to electronics and communication.  The content has been updated to include the latest trends and technologies in use by cruisers today, and will include these key subjects:

  • Below the Waterline
  • Topsides
  • Inside the Boat
  • Electronics & Communication
  • Power Management
  • Safety Systems
  • Dinghies
  • Recreational Goodies
  • Provisioning
  • Ditch Bag
  • Medical Kit
  • Spare Parts

The presentation includes hundreds of photos and illustrations.  Norm & Beth will also have lots of equipment on hand.
