Finishing your Boat Repair

Finishing your boat repair

Finishing your boat repair is a very satisfying part of the process. It is the most visible aspect of your the work. It doesn’t matter whether we have made the most structurally sound fiberglass repair or not. If the final step doesn’t look good, the work doesn’t look good.

Leaving your boat looking completely undetectable from our work is the most difficult part of fiberglass boat repair. Blemishes in this stage are extremely difficult and virtually impossible to mask.

Most people choose either gel-coat, one-part paint , or two-part paint to complete their repair. Each of these options has strengths and weaknesses.

In short, one-part paint is the easiest to apply, but it is difficult to hide mistakes. Gel-coat is more difficult to apply, but it can be sanded and buffed to remove application errors.

Two-part paint is expensive and difficult to apply properly and safely.
