    Boat detailing – where do I start?
    Surely you’ve asked yourself that question, or else you wouldn’t be researching and reading about the best boat detailing classes in the first place. We have an answer for that question, and it’s the Marine 31 Boat Detailing Class.



    Tools? You like tools?
    Our one-day boat detailing class provides an in-depth look at boat detailing inside and out. You'll get thorough instructions on how to properly machine sand a boat, remove sanding marks and oxidation with a high speed rotary polisher, machine-apply a wax using a dual action polisher, and more!

    We'll go over how to use the Flex 3401 for production boat detailing.

    You'll get to use the RUPES BigFoot 21 for creating a show car finish on black gel-coat boats.

    We'll go over machine sanding using the Flex 3401 (that's right we're going to machine sand with the Flex 3401) and the Porter Cable 7424XP Polisher.

    For sanding you'll learn how to use the Mirka Abralon Sanding Discs by machine and by hand. You'll also learn why it's smarter to machine sand heavily oxidized gel-coat boats versus compound with a rotary buffer.



    Limited Class Size
    The class size will be limited to give everyone an opportunity to ask questions and practice the techniques. The class will be held in the fully equipped Autogeek Show Car Garage located at our headquarters in Stuart, Florida.


    These are intense hands-on classes!












    Before

    Water Spot Stains & Oxidation
    Not only is the entire hull filled with holograms from the misuse of a rotary buffer, (the normal practice by most boat detailers), the gel-coat is also oxidized and covered with water spot stains.









    After













    When: February 6th, 2016
    Time: 7:30am 4:00pm Eastern Time


    Where:

    Autogeek's Show Car Garage
    7744 SW Jack James Drive
    Stuart, FL 34997
    Mapquest Driving Directions




    What to bring: Bring a pen and paper to take notes if you like. All chemicals and tools will be provided.

    Dress: Dress is casual, remember you're going to be washing a boat as well as detailing the boat inside and outside. Please don't wear Flip Flops or dress shoes of any kind. Wear work clothes like jeans, t-shirt and tennis shoes, the kind of clothes that you would wear when washing and detailing a boat.


    We cannot emphasis enough that these are very HANDS-ON classes so get a good night's sleep the night before the class and be ready to learn and have fun!



    Note: This will be the only boat detailing class for 2016.
    The timing of this is right after the Stuart Boat Show and well before the boat season starts. This gives you time to take the class and then get your boat ready for summer. If you detail boats for money then attend this class and position yourself to dominate your market.


    Our last boat detailing class filled up fast so mark your calendars and plan your schedules accordingly.

    Re: Marine 31 Boat Detailing Class - Saturday February 6th, 2016

    ***Update***


    This class is already filling up!


    Boat Owners
    If you're a do-it-yourselfer and no one touches your boat besides you then you need this class. Why? Because you'll learn exactly what to do and the order to do it so no wasted time, wasted steps or wasted money.

    Most boat owners I meet fall into one of two categories.


    Category 1
    Boat owner hires a boat detailer and regrets it. Severe buyers remorse describes most people that hire someone else to detail their boat. Usually because of such shoddy work and horrible results. The most common comment I hear from boat owners after going through a bad experience with a boat detailer goes like this,

    I could have done a better job myself

    Fact is, after you take my class not only will you do a better job, if you do decide to hire a boat detailer you'll be able to judge and determine who knows what they are doing and who is simply another hack boat detailer. Either way, when you take this class you win. This class will be the best $300.00 you ever spent when it comes to owning your boat.


    Category 2
    Boat owner tries to detail their boat themselves. Nothing wrong with this in fact I'm a do-it-yourselfer. The thing is if you don't now what you're doing in a nut shell... you're spinning your wheels. If you don't know what tool to use, what pad to use, which compounds and polishes work and by work I mean do the job right the first time, then you're in for hours and hours of punishment with nothing but mediocre results.

    Detailing a boat is really one of those projects where a little knowledge goes a long way. Plus the knowledge and skill you'll learn in this class will last you a lifetime. If you're a boat owner this class will be the least expensive investment with the highest returns in boat owning pleasure you'll ever make.



    Boat Detailers
    If you plan to detail boats for profit, then this class is a MUST. Here's the deal. Most boat detailers are still using antiquated products, tools and procedures. The results are every boat they detail is filled with HOLOGRAMS.

    Not only is this a disservice to the boat owner but it ACCELERATES future oxidation by leaving the surface of the gel-coat more open due to increasing the total surface area of the hull PLUS leaving the surface scoured with millions of scratches.

    At our boat detailing class I'll teach you the proper way to machine compound, polish and wax boat plus how to educate your customer as to why to choose you over the cheap guys.

    Plus, you'll also learn how to turn down boat owners that won't pay for quality and go after smart boat owners that appreciate and will pay a fair price to have the job done right. Then you'll learn how to go after this segment of the boat owner market and build a profitable customer base instead of chasing after price shoppers that in the long run are always a waste of time. Let the hack boat detailers have the price shoppers.
