Under heavy impact, fiberglass will fracture, allowing water to seep through.
Once damaged, the fiberglass must be ground out and new glass laid up on each side of the fracture to regain stability and integrity.
Gel Coat Repair
Chipped gel coat allows moisture into the fiberglass allowing deterioration of the structure.
Fresh gel coat needs to be applied after the damage is sanded down to keep water and moisture out.
As an added benefit, it also keeps your boat looking like new!
Depending on how much time your boat is out in the weather, stored inside or outside in off season, your brightwork needs to be maintained regularly from oxidization.
This can include any exposed chrome, stainless steel, brass, or bronze, as well as the varnish on any woodwork.
Waxing restores your boat's outer hull, if not to its original finish, close to it.
As there are many waxing & buffing products on the market, it is essential to know where to start & what product you should start with based on the current condition of your gel coat.
