This engine replacement was done on the water which is always more challenging than when on the hard. An oyster punt was used with a small crane, then attached to this was a chain-block for more accurate lifting. The lifting in and out was quite simple however pulling the engine in and out of the […]
It just goes to show what can be done with fiberglass. This customer ran out of options to replace the original running boards for his hot rod vintage truck and asked if fiberglass could be a solution to a difficult problem. The steel running boards were sandblasted and primed before we laid them up with […]
We re-painted the superstructure and decks of this yacht. All gloss was colour matched to original gelcoat which was faded beyond repair. We used a special brushing 2 pack system that if done well is very similar to a sprayed finish. The decks were painted in a similar paint with fine glass beads for grit. […]
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.

One major job added to the list was a new transom which was badly rotted. The new transom was replaced using ‘Thermolite board’ which is a composite panel, stronger […]

This Cruise Craft was fitted with a new model E-Tec Evinrude which is a very different style of engine to anything else on the market. The first thing you notice is how much of the engine is aft of the transom. This combined with the extra power puts a quite a bit more load on […]
This late model Haines suffered some gelcoat damage on the keel line. Part of this damage ripped into the ‘Keel Guard’ strip that was fitted along the keel so needed to be replaced. Not being familiar with the ‘Keel Guard’ brand we found this product to be excellent. It comes in a well organized little […]
