Instructor

Dennison Berwick is a marine mechanic and the creator and publisher of the Marine Diesel Basics Project, the first visual guide to marine diesel systems. His book on maintenance, winterizing and recommissioning has been acclaimed by Peter Nielsen in Sail Magazine as "the best guide on the subject I've seen, this book has a place on every diesel-equipped boat". Dennison is currently working on his second book in the series, a compendium of 440 pages with 1500+ drawings on how things work and installation guidelines. It should be published later this year.
