This job was to repair peeling paint from a bad paint job. The extent of this wasn’t apparent until we started the prep where it was decided to simply use a pressure cleaner to remove the loose paint layers. The affected areas were above gunnel mainly. Once this was done it was clear how much […]
We all can appreciate those who show their boat a lot of love. This Seafarer was as neat as a pin, with a small scratch on the bottom of the hull near the bow. Along with this repair that we carried out, the owner requested the installation of a few upgrades, a new drum winch, […]
The transom of a boat is one of the most critical parts of the hull structure, especially outboard driven boats. This older style Southwind had some serious transom issues. Once opened up we could see that a DIY repair had been attempted along the top section, with stainless rods inserted down about 100mm hoping that […]
We helped this customer reconfigure his Bertram 25 from twin engine installation to single. This entailed cutting out the old (rotted) twin engine beds, replacing this structure and installing new engine beds to suit the new Volvo inboard stern-drive engine. Internally not only did we discover that the old engine beds were rotted but also […]
Now that composite panel is becoming the norm, it’s uses are endless. We recently made a set of new floorboards for a tinnie from Thermolite of the same thickness. But its much stronger, lighter and will never rot! Once cut to size, these were re-covered in matching marine carpet, job done!
Boats can get damaged in so many different ways… this Scout center console runabout almost had its T-top ripped off when it collided with the garage roof. Luckily the frame remained mostly unscathed but it tore itself out of the deck and caused some damage where it was mounted. The entire moulded center console was […]
One downside of aluminium boats is the risk of corrosion. This Stacer tinnie looked pretty good below gunnel however above this were widespread areas of corrosion bubbling the paint. The owner had started the task of stripping and sanding the top deck and parts of the console and back seat. We took over and etch […]
We promised an update on this project, and we are delivering the final chapter with it now all finished. Although there is more to do, the owner is taking it from here, with all the back-breaking sanding, painting done and main components installed, all that’s left is the fitting up of deck gear, lights and […]
