8:00am – 5:00pm Northern Lights/Lugger Diesel Class *
The popular all-day engine class presented by Northern Lights’ engine guru, Bob Senter, is being offered one day prior to the start of the Nordhavn Rendezvous allowing owners who may or may not be taking part in the Rendezvous to attend. The class will cover maintenance, repair, and diagnostics. Class size is limited to 18 individuals, and a participation fee of $120 will include a box lunch. Since Rendezvous registration coincides during the duration of the class, any participants attending the rendezvous will have the opportunity to register during the class lunch break.
*this class is independent from the Rendezvous. Sign-up and payment required. For more information contact Barry Kallander at email@example.com.
