Seminars at Crick Boat Show

Boat Ownership Seminars

Whether you're just considering getting afloat, a novice or a seasoned boater, there is a seemingly endless amount to be learned about boat ownership and boating. Mark Langley, Technical Editor of Waterways World, hosts a series of seminars to support both new and experienced boaters.

The video seminars at Virtual Crick Boat Show are designed to cover the most pertinent questions to consider when

  • buying a new or second hand boat
  • designing a new boat or refitting an older one
  • designing, improving and maintaining electrical systems for best performance
  • reducing your impact on the environment with green boating
  • living afloat
  • maintaining your boat - its engine and services; upgrades and safety
  • selling your boat

Watch the Seminar videos and then send your questions for our boating experts (including Mark Langley). Seminars will be available to view 'on demand' from 10am Wednesday 24 March 2021.

Answers will be broadcast in live Crick Radio Q&A Sessions
