Professional repairs for your GRP or inflatable boat
GRP repair – deep damage
We repair deep damages with our GRP repair. This involves repairing the damaged area and thus restoring the tightness of the hull or even the deck. The load capacity of your boat after repair is equal to the original condition. A new gelcote is then applied and sanded so that no mark remains visually.
Gelcoat repair – light scratches
Gelcoat repair is used for minor damage such as scratches or abrasions. But also as a finish after repair deeper damage to the GRP. During gelcoat repair, we start by sanding the damaged area to ensure that the new gelcoat adheres well. We then apply a new layer of gelcoat. We match the color of the new gelcoat exactly to your boat color so that no visible mark remains. Depending on the depth of the damage, several layers are applied, which cure for up to 24 hours per layer. We then sand and polish the repaired area until a perfect surface is restored.
We also carry out repairs to your Hypalon or PVC inflatable boat directly in our workshop. Here we repair leaks and also repair holes on your inflatable boat. After the repair, you can again fully rely on the tightness of the hose and enjoy 100% the fun of driving.
