This Sailfish 2660 custom enclosed windscreen project has now been completed. We have been waiting for the custom-made side and center panels from the supplier since our last post. The panels were made from our Cad templates and fitted perfectly. With the top and bottom flanges screwed in position and all surfaces bonded in with […]
Black is always the most difficult colour to repair. This Jetski had a small chip on the corner of the topsides which was filled and primed for final gloss finish. With it blended and polished in the repair disappeared.
This Malibu Response wake-board boat had some gelcoat damage on the underside of the hull. To do this properly the boat was lifted off its trailer onto work stands.

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 […]
