    Continued....

    Just an update.

    I've sent everyone that has attended this class the link to this thread. This IS the pictures and comments thread for your class. If you're not a member of this forum, you cannot post to this thread until you join the forum. Joining is just filling out a few lines of info like any other online form. Here's the link to join the forum.

    Approval can take a few hours as I'm the guy that approves all new accounts and when you join - I might not be sitting behind a computer. So have patience, I check for new accounts a few times each day and in the evening.


    Need help?
    If you need help creating your account, for any reason, simply call me on my cell phone this coming Thursday or Friday during work hours and I'll create your account while we're on the phone. Otherwise call me next Monday through Thursday. I'll be teaching the 3-day class starting on Friday.


    THIS IS the thread to post your feedback or review about the class you just took.



    Thank you!

    First thank you to everyone that attended the 2020 Marine 31 Boat Detailing Class. The boats were in absolutely HORRIBLE condition and now they look brand spanking new!

    Everyone worked hard, learned a lot and the results show it.


    As I type this it's Tuesday, February 11th, just after lunch. Management gives me the day off after any of my classes so I was off yesterday. I'm happy to say as of today, I have my voice back.



    Clean-up

    All I'm getting done today is clean-up. As you all witnessed, the garage is a disaster! With the help of some co-workers, we're getting everything cleaned up and prepping the garage for the upcoming 3-day Car Detailing Boot Camp Class. If you click the link below, you'll see what a Mike Phillips Car Detailing Class looks like.


    Training Cars for the February 2020 3-day Car Detailing Bootcamp Class



    Anyway, tomorrow is Wednesday, February 12 and I took the day off as it's my birthday and my wife Stacy has something special planned for me. This means I won't be back into the office and ready to do "office work" until Thursday and Friday. As soon as I get back I'll start adding some of the picture Meghan took on Saturday to showcase all your hard work.


    So join the forum, post your review or feedback about what you thought of the class and stay tuned as I'm going to add more pictures to this thread.

    Here’s just one aspect of clean-up

    Washing the gel-coat out 24 RUPES Wool Cutting Pads.

















    I then blew them off using the Tornador Air Blowout Gon and laid them out to air dry.






    Back to cleaning up the Training Academy.

    This class blows my mind. If I worked on a lot more boats than I do, I would make this class a “Must Do” that’s for sure. Actually, I would like to do it just to do it but I would have to justify the costs simply just to get there from NZ.

    If I hadn’t known better, I would’ve taken a look at the condition of that gel coat & said there was no chance of recovering that .... & yet here we are - looks incredible. Hats off to everyone who took this class, y’all did a superb job.

    He's still limping. Thank you for asking. For those that don't know, Mojito was scared on New Year's Eve when some fireworks went off and he jumped off the couch and hurt his back left leg. Dr. said it was probably a tear or something and they didn't recommend surgery, just don't let him jump up or down off anything and limit his walking. So Stacy and I pretty much carry him everywhere. It's been 6+ weeks and he's doing better but still gambling along on 3 legs most of the time.

    Boat detailing is a LOT of work. But it would be great to have you if it ever worked out.


    Me? I'm heading back to the garage, more clean-up to do before I can leave for the day.

    Damn, I must have missed that about Mojito, Mike.

    I hope it's not a cruciate tear. I have been through more than one of those with my dogs.

    Give him a scratch and a treat for me. Hope he gets better without the surgery.
    It is no coincidence that man's best friend cannot talk.

    Re: Pictures: 2020 Boat Detailing Class - SOLD OUT!

    This was a class that I would recommend to anyone that details their own boat or details boats professionally.

    I should have take this class 10 years ago. I was able to learn so much for Mike’s knowledge. The ability to actually get my hands on the tools and boats increased my amount of knowledge and experience I received.

    Do not think twice about this course and sign up now for next year’s course. The boats looked awesome when we were finished.

    I have a boat sitting in my driveway that I can not wait to apply my confident skills to!

    Hi Bradley,

    Are You using something besides water for the sanding lube?

    Re: Pictures: 2020 Boat Detailing Class - SOLD OUT!

    Hey Mike,

    Thanks for putting on another awesome class. I took the 3-day car class in September and it was great, so I wanted to take the boat class to top off my training. I was not disappointed. This class was a great opportunity to learn about the differences in wetsanding/polishing gelcoat vs clear coat or single-stage auto paints. While a lot of the same principles apply, there are some difference in products and techniques that were good to see and do first-hand.

    To anyone thinking of taking the class, I'd highly recommend this or the 3-day auto class. You get to put hands on all of the best tools and products in the industry so you leave with a good idea of what you prefer. This can save a lot of money when purchasing tools to startup a business by making sure you're getting exactly what you need. The discounts and credits you get also add up to quite a bit when placing orders after the class, so that helps justify the cost as well. And lastly, you get to meet a lot of cool people with similar interests to make friendships and contacts that hopefully will last a long time. Take the class!

    Big thanks to Andre for helping with the class as well. He's a great source of information regarding different products and a good contact within the company to call when getting ready to order something. He's also just an all-around great guy.

    Thanks again, Mike and Andre.

    Yes. 3-4 drops of soap. In this example it was the Marine 31 boat wash.

    1. The soap helps to lubricate the surface as your sanding for smoother sanding experience.
    2. The soap helps to prevent the discs from loading up (they still load up).
    3. The soap helps the water to stay wetter on the surface longer instead of simply evaporating.
    4. The soap gives the water the ability to cling better to a vertical surface.



    That's off the top of my head...
