Keeping boats sailing longer with realistic and sound repairs whilst minimising, where possible, pollution from non biodegradable plastic waste, we can also help clients considering turning their derelict or broken boats back into usable products to enjoy for many years to come. We can help at any stage of a rebuild. Usually we'll undertake the difficult structural work for a customer and they keep the budget down in finishing and refitting themselves.
