  The white gel coat on my boat is dull

Do I have to bring my boat to you?
 

No. Normally we come to where your boat is moored or laid up ashore. We operate mobile workshops that allow us to do most jobs on site. However, sometimes we may ask you to take your boat to a particular yard or location due to the nature of the work that has to be done. We can make arrangements for transportation if you wish.

  I have damage to the textured deck on my boat. Can it be repaired?  

Yes it can be repaired. We have developed a method of matching the surface of the repaired area to the original. The result is near perfect but you will normally see a slight difference in the two surfaces.
