Cosmetic work is definitely the most rewarding. Such a big difference can be made in such a short amount of time because over the years we have become extremely efficient at cosmetic repair. It’s always a pleasure when the customer comes to pick up the boat and needs to be shown where the large whole used to be. The pictures do not accurately display the fact that you will not be able to find the area that was repaired.
There are a lot of different approaches to gelcoat repair. Some of them can become quite a sight. As time passes, you don’t want to be left with a 6” wide stripe down the side of your boat that looks much worse than the small gouges that were repaired in the first place. Our patch work is always done using the same materials that your boat was made with at the factory, and we don’t use any tricks to hide our patches that will show up later on. Excellent color matching and blending techniques enables us to keep our footprint very small. What we often tell our customers is to just forget that it ever happened. Treat the repaired area just like the rest of the boat and you will be fine. In our minds this is what you should receive for your money. A good repair should be done once and not continue to haunt you as time passes.
