We were asked to supply a quote to replace one of the keels on this catamaran. When the boat was lifted it was discovered that both keels were missing. How the keels were lost is a mystery as the owner was not aware of anything at the time. The original keels were built as a […]
This job started off with a relatively simple repair to the stern drive mounting hole however the job list soon grew. The owner requested some exhaust fittings removed and re-fitted on the transom. This involved removing the duckboard assembly for access and some re-finishing work. Also one of the engine beds needed repairs and re-flowcoating.

The boat was then fitted with steel temporary rudders to keep the boat in operation. The stainless steel shafts and support tangs were fabricated before the foam and epoxy rudder blades were formed over the […]
