GRP - Repairs & Build

GRP & Gelcoat repairs from the smallest scratch to the largest hole. Major Insurance repair work undertaken -  famous for the perfect gelcoat colour match!

Back in the 60’s when Glass Reinforced Plastic (GRP) was introduced into the boat building trade, our first project was making moulds for rowing dinghies and river motor launches. Today we repair from the smallest gel coat damage up to the largest hole you could dare to imagine in your boat!

We also work with epoxies and composite materials, carbon fibre and Kevlar.

We are happy to work with you and your insurance company to get you boat back in action as fast as possible and all insurance work is carried out to the highest standard.
