The owner of this Clipper 40 called us after he started cutting out rotten reinforcement below his anchor winch, and he began to become overwhelmed by the size of the job. The work consisted of rotten plywood reinforcing sections below the deck, along the bulkhead behind this and also the core of the bowsprit. The […]
This little side job got this bowsprit back in action. It had been glassed with polyester and chopmat which was cracking and peeling off, letting moisture into the timber underneath. This was stripped off, prepped and re-glassed with epoxy. Even the bolt and screw holes were treated with epoxy to avoid water ingress coming in […]
This catamaran suffered some rudder and steering damage after running aground. Most of the damage was caused on the Starboard side with the bottom foil off this side rudder broken clean off. The other foil was still attached but badly damaged requiring it to be glassed back on. The rudder pintal fittings were leaking and […]
This 6m Cruise Craft was in like-new condition however the keel forefoot had caught on something and created some nasty damage. A strip about a meter long had been flattened off requiring glassing to build back up. We suggested a ‘Keel-guard’ strip be applied over this area to protect this area from future damage. Although […]
A quick side job with this deck hatch that had rotted plywood reinforcement strips around the edge. We removed the affected material and replaced it. It was then glassed over with epoxy to seal the material in. Externally we re-finished the gelcoat which was badly weathered.
Part of this bunk was rotted after some cracking let moisture in. This small job saw this repaired and a couple of rotted locker trims replaced and the boat was ready for action once again. The lesson here is to keep on top of any of these small jobs periodically to avoid a monster job […]
Here’s another update on this project. We are at painting stage outside with the inside almost done. Since our last post we have fitted the two new Vetus water tanks just forward of the mast with custom made mounts. The aft cabin fit-out (where the full sized bath was fitted!) is also mostly structurally complete. […]
The worst thing you can do is leave a boat sitting out in the weather too long. This Stacer tinnie was badly neglected and some of the floorboards had rotted away and required replacing. The new floorboards were made and primed to weather-proof before re-carpeting. Because the main lower floorboards were rotted away to such […]
