Fiberglass - Gel Coat Repairs


Fiberglass Repairs

Custom Boat Repairs does fiberglass repairs the right way the first time. This process starts by enclosing the repair area to contain the spread of fiberglass particles and keeping it properly vented. This is accomplished by using 2 ventilator blowers and a large air compressor, which are used to run all of the air tools such as grinders & carbide cutters. A Heavy-duty generator is used to run all equipment as boat yards do not usually have sufficient power to do this. Quality resin like Polyester and Vinyl Ester are purchased separately and specifically for each job. By using the Tyvek Suit and a self-contained breathing unit.

 


Major Hull Reconstruction

Engine Mounting Blocks, Stringers and Transoms are some of the first things that deteriorate on a boat hull especially when the fiberglass covering is penetrated by mounting screws & clamps. This and large holes in hulls can be repaired using new hi-tech resins and bi-ply fiberglass to make the hull stronger than the day it left the factory.
 


Expert Color Matching

Miami Boat Works takes extreme pride in its expert color matching & blending techniques . When the repair is completed it has a shiny mirror finish. You will not see any dry Rings or tape lines like other repairmen leave. Customers approve the color match before the repairs begin. Great color matches can also be achieved on non-skid surfaces like the ones on swim platforms.
 

 

Gel Coat Repairs

By owning a boat, most people take pride in the vessel that they put on the water. Since there are all kinds of different boats, it is imperative that you find the right marine service shop that can handle all kinds of cosmetic repairs so that you don't have to go searching shop to shop to see if they can take care of your boat. Here at Miami Boat Works, we are able to take care of any and all types of cosmetic boat repairs, including gel coat repair.

Gel coating is the shiny layer on the boat that gives it its flair and good looks. Over time, this layer can be chipped off, weathered, or can even crack. When this happens, it can lead to many more potential problems as the underlayment can become damaged once the gel coat is gone. When this happens, it is important to be able to get the gel coat applied again to your boat to not only protect it, but to keep your boat looking amazing.

While most people don't realize it, having a boat gives the owner a sense of pride. This prideful sense is very similar to owning a nice car. If the car gets paint damage, or if it start to look bad, that sense of pride is reversed into embarrassment. The same is true when it comes to boats. Stop being embarrassed every time you take your boat out on the water, and start making people turn their heads because your boat looks amazing instead.
