Yes, I will send you also the info for the mid-May celestial nav class with the SSS once I have it worked out.

So glad you called List Marine! You'll really get a lot out of it. For anyone else, I just saw this diesel class in SoCal: https://occsailing.augusoft.net/inde..._class_id=5923

Re: Celestial Navigation & diesil engine courses

Funny. I'm seeing these classes all over the SF Bay area right now...this is going to be on April 9 at the boat show in Richmond. I'd go just to hear Calder speak, but the List Marine course is more than likely much more hands on with a real engine to play with and Hans uses the same book.

Re: Celestial Navigation & diesil engine courses

When I took the List Marine class the instructor asked each of us what engine we had. They used a Yanmar for the hands-on engine but the instructor was careful to tell me how my Perkins 4.236 was different. The only significant difference was the need to bleed cylinders 3 and 4 at the injectors. Saved my butt in Monterey when I forgot to close the fuel petcock when changing fuel filters.

(I now have a set of five combination wrenches on a caribiner with a paracord lanyard dedicated to bleeding the fuel system 8^) Paracord lanyard keeps wrenches out of the bilge.
