This is a 2-day class that covers both exterior and interior boat detailing. The classes start at 7:30am sharp and end around 5:30pm each day.

These are on-your-feet, hands-on detailing classes. There will be chairs for our lunch break or if you need to take a break, besides that there's really no sitting time. If you want to sit at a boat detailing class you'll need to find some other class.


I ONLY teach this class once a year.

The most common question I get about the boat detailing class is,

When is the next class?

I usually get this from people that MISS the class. I then tell them to their chagrin,

The next class is NEXT YEAR.

To my knowledge, this is the ONLY hands-on boat detailing class available on Planet Earth. It's definitely the ONLY boat class that is photo-documented. I share pictures to show you that when you attend my boat detailing class you are on your feet working with your head and your hands.

People learn best by doing, not sitting in a chair looking at the wall as someone drones on and on. These are not those types of classes.

So get signed up before this class is sold out.

See you here...

I don't bring in pretty boy, fancy new boats and then try to teach you how to detail a boat. That would be stupid. Anyone can detail a NEW boat. No... I bring in the WORST CONDITION boats I can find because then I can teach you EVERYTHING as to how to make the boat LOOK brand new. See the difference?

You can't learn anything on a new boat because there's nothing wrong with it. You can learn everything on a neglected boat because quite frankly... there's so much to do and thus so much to learn.

Here's an example of just ONE of the boats my class trained on last year.






First I teach you how to do a TEST SPOT on a boat. Like this,


Look at the results! That is a MIRROR FINISH on gel-coat.


Then I turn you loose... (after I show you the correct technique)

These folks are MACHINE SANDING and it's round 8:30 in the morning!

No sitting - all hands-on learning


Here's the before and after...

By now it's 5:30pm at night and "yes" these people are TIRED!

But they now know EXACTLY how to take a boat from neglected to respected!

While the folks above were working on the ProLine, on the other side of the classroom the students are tackling the 21' Sea Hunt


Using a SCANGRIP Multimatch light to light up the side of the hull to reveal all the sanding scratches from the owner!





Machine sanding to level the sanding marks and remove the oxidation



This boat came out picture perfect. I know for a fact it looks better now than when it was at the boat dealership. (go ahead, ask me how I know)
