West Marine and the South Carolina Marine Association are holding seminars Aug. 22 at all 10 retail stores in the state.
Each store will bring in local marine experts to speak with boaters about best practices and preventative maintenance. The day-long seminar also will cover electronics, engines, fiberglass, trailering and other topics of interest.
Several locations will also have booths from area marine businesses. The U.S. Power Squadrons and Coast Guard Auxiliary will be on hand to answer questions about boating safety.
