Re Enforce Floor and Hull repairs to 20 foot trailer boat
Trailer Boat repairs are a major portion of our operation and something we take pride in! We even recently opened a new premises which is being kitted out to repair trailer boats, jet ski’s and other personal water craft. Located in Coomera Marine Precinct on the Gold Coast, QLD Australia.
This Trailer boat presented with a flexing hull, some stress fracturing occurring around the load points when the vessel was on its trailer and slight flexing in the hull and a soft flooring. The Plan here was to remove the floor, re-enforce the Hull and repair the stress fracturing with additional advanced GRP laid down then improve on the design of the hull and floor support with some lateral marine ply bearers tailored to the hull shape and contour and bonded in with advanced Acme Bond. This would then be laid up with more Advanced Fibre Glass and resin to produce a very sturdy hull structure before being flow coated for water proofing and then re installing the floor and re-glassing the floor in with some minor repairs to the floor edges. Just one of those jobs our team thoroughly enjoy performing, improving on the manufacturers design and handing a boat back that will not only withstand tougher conditions but maneuver and handle better in the water! View the images below of the progress.
UPDATE – Glassing over the lateral stringers is completed and the area flow coated to finish it off. The floor is then bonded back in place and next the area will be prepared and new non skid will be applied. More pics to come soon.
