Here's what an alumnus of the Mike Phillips' Boat Detailing Class had to say about his experience:
"Calling all Fellow Boat Detailer's!
I wanted to share my experience & Benefits of taking the Marine 31 Boat Detailing Class, in February of this 2016.
I have been detailing for 13 years, and of that, the last 8 years specializing in Boats. Averaging 35-40 Boats a year, but was looking for a way to grow my business & increase production.
Taking this class was a real game changer for me, especially in the wet sanding/ buffing and get coat correction part of the class. I was humbled after the class to say the least.
All this time prior I had had been buffing out boats the wrong way, (only foam or only wool) no wet sanding. After seeing and experiencing the correct process in the class, I was more then ready to get home use the newly acquired skills from this class. Needless to say it has completely turned around how I detail a boat, I have tripled the amount of boats I was detailing a year (35-40 per year) to this year, I have completed 80 boats since March 1st, 2016, and am well on my way to my goal of 100 Boats this year.
The quality of my work has vastly improved and my customers have taken notice.
I owe all of this to Mike Phillips, who after meeting him at SEMA, encouraged me to take the Class. WOW and thank you is all I can say!
If you haven't taken the class yet, I would highly recommend it. Even if you are not detailing boats full time, TAKE THE CLASS, it is one of the Best Detailing Classes you will ever take."
