Custom Fiberglass Boat Repair
After Pylon Collision
July 2010

Bluewater Boat Repair specializes in custom fiberglass work in order to fix some of the more complex boat repairs. On June 26, 2010 a customer had a collision with a pylon causing serious damage to a Silver King flats boat. The damage was so severe that a portion of the top deck had to be recreated which included the nonskid decking and gunwale flange.

The process of repairing this boat including removal of the top deck in order to properly access the damaged portion of the boat. Damaged gunwale was cut out and then redesigned as it was beyond repair. Bluewater Boat Repair actually recreated the portion that was removed with composite materials. The correct angles and dimensions were taken in to account. This was a very complicated procedure that requires only the most skillful boat repair and fiberglass technicians. The experience and attention to details were a necessity in order to restore the boat to it's previous condition.

The customer was very satisfied when the boat was returned.

" I never in a million years would think that my boat would ever look the same as it did before the accident. I was astonished that the boat looked better than what it had before. Tim at Bluewater Boat Repair was amazing. He took the time to show me the restoration process. After seeing the steps it took to complete the job I an convinced that I could not have had a better person working on my boat. The attention to detail was superb and the constant communication via updates during the repairs was much appreciated. Thank you Tim."

Below are pictures of the custom fiberglass work that Bluewater Boat Repair did on this boat.
