There's a hole in my boat, Deliah.
Damage to fibreglass boats often looks a lot worse than it is. The material is almost infinitely repairable after impact damage and often without any obvious external markings.
That’s not to say it’s a simple affair; many GRP repairs require access to hard-to-reach areas of a boat, often requiring the internal dismantling of fixtures and panels. Repairs may involve working at arm’s length, sometime almost without view.
Whether it’s above or below the waterline, Kingfisher Boat Services can offer a fibreglass repair service for your boat; perhaps you have an ex-hire craft that needs its battle scars healing or you’ve had an encounter with something that’s left a hole or a crack in your boat.
Sometimes, due to poor initial lay-up, impact or water ingress, decks and other areas become saggy or springy where the lamination layers have begun to separate. This can be particularly disconcerting and is particularly common on Freeman cruisers. Whilst it's probably not going to give under your own weight, many people find the whole movement thing quite worrying. It is curable.
Whatever has happened, we’ll be pleased to take a look and give you an estimate for the repair. We’ll use Lloyds Marine approved resins and provide a professional finish that you can be proud of.
