Ron Werner & Class
As Ron and Rose Werner of the Phoenix Sail & Power Squadron, District 28, point out: "This is one of those classes that most people might wonder what good is the information, given that [a majority] get their work done by a mechanic." However, as students go through the maintenance class, they usually discover they have more knowledge than they realized. Most still use their favored mechanic, but they gain enough knowledge to be more able to participate in repairs. A valuable skill learned is how to diagnose (and often fix) an issue that occurs when out on the water. The Marine-Engine Maintenance class, one of the most popular offered by the PSPS, is an example of many different classes of varying difficulty that are available. However, all contribute in one way or another to boating safety.
