If you are experiencing yacht fiberglass damage, do not worry - our team is here to help!
Once fiberglass damage has been determined, our yacht maintenance specialists will walk you through the timeline for completing the repairs. Our fiberglass mechanics will start by identifying and cutting away the damage. Enlarging the fiberglass hole may be necessary in order to remove all damaged fiberglass to replace with new laminate.
After the damaged area is removed, our mechanics will work from the inside of the damage and build outward; the way the boat molds are originally designed. Our team will then dewax the patch with a special solvent so that the original fiberglass and the fiberglass repairs will be identical.
After the dewax is completed, we will begin the grind, mask, and mold process. Repairs will also require the use of polyester or vinyl ester resin or epoxy, in addition to a catalyst, to 'cure' the resin for a strong lay-up. Before the job is complete, our fiberglass mechanics will apply a gelcoat and lay-up.
