Seminars



Fred's Shed Interactive Learning Center,  Booth 1846

DIY seminars and hands-on workshops covering boat and motor maintenance, repairs and upgrades

 Watch, learn and do! If you're a do-it-yourselfer or boat owner interested in maintaining, repairing or upgrading your boat or motor, head to Fred's Shed for free seminars and workshops. Daily sessions will cover a variety of topics, and include demos and question/answer sessions. Together, hosts “The Boating Guy,” and certified marine service technician "Fred", bring more than 50 years boating and marine service experience to the Shed.

 Stop by for professional, practical advice, participate in hands-on clinics, ask questions, and see the cutaway boat and motor. It's all FREE, compliments of the Progressive® Insurance New England Boat Show.
