Wood Joinery, Repairs, & Refinishing

Sample Project 1: The first boat here is a 26' Tartan which had just been purchased and was in need of some attention. The bottom and boot stripe had several layers of flaky, unsightly paint built up over the years that required removal. We stripped the paint down to the gelcoat, repaired any minor defects, applied an epoxy barrier coat to the bottom using Interlux's Interprotect system, primed and painted a new boot stripe, compounded and waxed the topsides, installed some new deck hardware where needed, and stripped all the woodwork on deck and refinished it using Sikkens Cetol Marine Wood Finish.

Sample Project 2: The two wooden skiffs shown here had been in the owners family for years but were showing their age. We removed the paint from the exterior surfaces, sealed the bottoms using fiberglass cloth and West System epoxy, installed new oak gunwale guards on one skiff and oak rub strakes on the bottom of both, and painted them both throughout using Pettit Easypoxy, a single part polyurethane.
