    Pictures: 2021 Boat Detailing Class - SOLD OUT!



    I'm happy to say the 2021 Boat Detailing Class SOLD OUT!




    We had 27 people take this class traveling to Florida from all over the United States plus Haiti!



    The first boat has arrived!


    This is a Conch27 - 27' Center Console Sports Fishing Boat.

    When it comes to gelcoat correction - you're going to learn how to work smarter - not harder.








    Although the parking lot out front was full, the owner's brother Bill easily slid her into place for the 2-day class.












    The second boat has arrived!

    Here's a few shots of the garage the night before the first day of class.

























    For a boat owner to detail their own boat, it's fairly involved. But setting up a classroom for 27 people AND having enough tools, pads and products so everyone has everything thing they need - it's a HUGE undertaking. But our goal for ALL our detailing classes is making sure the people attending have a first class experience.

    One thing I try for all my classes and that is to be consistent. Part of being consistent is starting the classes on time.

    I don't normally wear a watch or jewelry when teaching classes, so I'm borrowing my good friend Keith Duplessie's wrist and wrist watch to document we're starting on time as advertised.

    As I'm typing, it's 9:45am on Monday morning, the day after the 2-day class. I'm beat. Andre is beat. Everyone in the class is beat. Boat detailing will beat you up. It's very physical.


    The garage is a disaster!


    I'll add more pictures to this thread to photo-document this class but not today. After I hit the submit button for this post I have to get out to the garage and start cleaning up. We're also shooting a video today so I have to coffee-up to get my energy level up and also get my voice back.

    I'll be offline on Tuesday and Wednesday, I'm fortunate that management gives me a couple days off after an intense class like this one and it's also my wedding anniversary tomorrow, so time to celebrate plus recharge my batteries.




    If you're reading this - no doubt you attended this class and received an e-mail from sharing the link to this thread.

    I thank everyone that attended this class for all your hard work and dedication to working safely and also professionally to create the incredible results achieved on both the inside and outside of the two training boats.

    I would also like to thank my special guest, Keith Duplessie for his assistance in teaching the class, keeping everyone busy and also safe.

    I would REALLY like to than Andre Hile - he is such a hard working and always so incredibly helpful to me as well as everyone in the class.

    And I would also like to thank all the rest of the staff and management here at Autogeek for their support behind the scenes to make these classes the huge success that they are - thank you everyone.



    That's it for today, I'm off to start getting the garage back into shape for a video today and then getting it setup for the upcoming 3-day Car Detailing Bootcamp Class in May.

    The Marine 31 two day boat detailing class, was hands down worth its weight in gold.

    Having minimal experience in the boating world, and stepping out of my comfort zone, this class gave you that comfort zone at arms reach. I say arms reach meaning Mike/Keith/Andre were merely 10% of the class, and myself (student) was the 90% of the work to reach that comfort zone.

    Thank you Mike Phillips, Keith Duplessie, Andre Hile, and staff at Autogeek for putting together this Class for the detailing community!

    For me personally, I have never owned a boat or plan to. That said, I am expanding my detailing business to include boats.

    The money paid for the class is worth it. I left with a solid foundation of knowledge to grow upon. I was also able to network and talk to a number of others attending the class who detail boats daily to get a great amount of additional insight.

    It was well worth the trip.
