Upcoming SDMC Webinar

The third in a series of Steve D’Antonio Marine Consulting’s technical education webinars.

Identifying the Most Common New and Used Vessel Construction and Systems Flaws Part II

New builds, repairs and refits provide ample opportunity to do things right, and to follow both ABYC and equipment-manufacturer guidelines and instructions. In many cases, however, that’s not the way it goes.

In this photo-intensive presentation marine industry consultant, and ABYC Master Technician Steve D’Antonio, will share with attendees examples of errors he’s encountered over the course of hundreds of new and used vessel inspections, including exhaust, LP gas, potable water, sanitation and fuel systems, with the goal of learning from the mistakes of others. This will not simply be a case of sharing horror stories and photos, each example will identify the flaw, as well as the fix and how the problem could have been avoided.

  • When: Monday, July 20, 2020 – 1:00 PM to 3:00 PM EST (approximately 90 minutes for the lecture, and 30 minutes of Q&A)
  • Delivery: Zoom Video Conferencing
  • Fee: $95.00

In addition to the lecture, attendees will be given exclusive access to a folder containing links to PDFs of over two dozen lecture-related articles.

This presentation enables professional attendees to accumulate two continuing education units (CEUs), for members of the Society of Accredited Marine Surveyors (SAMS), National Association of Marine Surveyors (NAMS) and those maintaining American Boat and Yacht Council (ABYC) marine technician certifications.

The lecture will be accessible for 30 days to those who register but cannot attend live. Please request the recording from Katie D’Antonio.
