Learn to do anything better...

One of the reasons that cruising is so satisfying is the pleasure that comes from self-sufficiency.  Whether they're one or one thousand miles offshore, cruisers are proud to be able to repair a balky diesel or concoct the best birthday cake ever without any fresh ingredients.

Waypoint (and our Complete Cruising Solutions partners) believe that our value comes from sharing our expertise in electronics, navigation, communication, and other topics.  That's why we offer the Cruiser's University--a program that educates soon-to-be cruisers about how to select and maintain equipment, manage complex marine systems, and much more.  

Because not everyone can "enroll" in Cruiser's U,  we'll share course notes as well as technical support information that may save you a semester or two at the school of hard knocks.  Please feel free to read or print the following documents for your own personal use. Most are in .PDF format and require Adobe Acrobat Reader plug-in to view and print.  Please do not reproduce or distribute these documents without our permission.  Thank you for your cooperation!
