Spring Events

The snow is still on the ground here in Muskegon, Michigan but we are looking forward to spring events to put us in the mood and get prepared for the upcoming sailing season. We hope you can join us for one or maybe all of the following events.

Spring Thaw – Saturday, March 13, 2010 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.

Torresen Marine has been shaking off the winter blahs with our annual Spring Thaw Open House for 30 years. We are continuing our tradition of in store discounting, onsite seminars, product representatives, exciting open house specials and great door prizes. Captain Jack Klang from Quantum Sails will be back this year with three new seminars, one of which is geared towards ladies only. Kevin Kyle from Interlux Yacht Finishes will also be doing a seminar for Spring Thaw. Kevin always has good information regarding your boats finish whether you are a racer and/or a cruiser. Please visit for a list of the seminars, product representatives, and other information regarding the Spring Thaw Open House.

Seminar #1: Bad Stuff On Boats – Saturday, March 20 – 1:00 p.m.

Hosted by Marian Lambrecht from Schuss Marine Services. Marian is a U.S.C.G. licensed captain, advanced diver and the only female yacht surveyor in the Midwest. She is only one of 20 women surveyors in the small group of 1,500 worldwide. Holed, cracked and wet keels, hulls and decks is only the beginning of this sobering collection of photos and stories she has collected during her surveying career.  The emphasis will be on sailboats, a reflection of Marian’s amateur racing career, which spans 25 years and four countries.  The session will be interactive so the group can comment and ask questions throughout the presentation.
