(ST MICHAELS, MD – Wednesday, February 14, 2018) The Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum in St. Michaels, Md., has planned two workshops in April to help boaters ready their engines for boating season.
On Wednesday, April 25, from 5:30–8:30pm, Recommissioning Your Outboard Motor will lead participants through checking the engine’s running condition and temperature, ignition and starting systems, and demonstrate how to replace the engine’s fuel filter. A second workshop, from 9am–noon on Saturday, April 28, will do the same for boats with inboard engines.
Both workshops will be led by Josh Richardson, CBMM’s marine mechanic. Richardson has 15 years of experience working in marine mechanics, and is a graduate of the Marine Mechanics Institute of Orlando, Fla.
Each workshop costs $25 for CBMM members and $35 for non-members. To register for the outboard motor workshop, visit cbmm.org/outboardrecommission. To register for the inboard workshop, visit cbmm.org/inboardrecommission. For a list of all upcoming shipyard programs, visit cbmm.org.
