    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 at Autogeek's 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 10th and 11th, 2018
    Time: 7:30am 5:30pm 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 DO NOT 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 2018.
    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.

    My personal recommendations for great places to eat while you're here in Stuart,


    Italian Cuisine

    La Forchetta

    Hands=down the best Italian food you will ever eat. If the owner Dominic is there, tell him Mike Phillips sent you. This restaurant is literally right down the road from Autogeek. It's in the same parking lot as the Holiday Inn Express and across the street from the Courtyard Stuart (see hotels above)



    Seafood

    Fresh Catch

    Again, if you love great seafood then Fresh Catch is hands-down the best seafood in town. It's only about 3 miles down Kanner highway and then a right on Indian street, go through 2 lights and take a left and you're there.

    When you get there, if you're sitting at the bar, tell Boomer I sent you.



    More to come...

    ***Weekly Bump***


    Just a reminder.

    This class is only taught once a year in the spring, usually in February.

    It always sells out. So clear your schedule and make your travel arrangements if you plan on attending this class in 2018.
