A process we regularly undertake is the waterproofing and antifouling of trailer boats so they can live in the water without any issues. The common idiom is that black antifoul is the best thing however it is proven that this can devalue the vessel and is very difficult to remove. We use a special white antifoul coating and couple it with one of our own nicecotedazurboatshow.com Ultrasonic Antifouling systems which provides the ultimate long term Antifouling protection. This job was on a 18 foot Stingray. First we found the appropriate water line by putting the vessel in the water and carefully measuring around the hull. Then the hull was prepared and waterproofed with a special sealing epoxy coating, primed and then anti fouled with a special hard white antifoul coating, finally a CleanABoat Ultrasonic Antifouling system was installed which coupled with the hard white antifoul will keep the hull clean of growth for 2-3 years before a simple hull scrub and touchup is required.
This is a neat little vessel that came in with some movement in the hull and under the seats. Requiring a bit of a re enforcement and repairs to under the seat base’s as you can see in the images. As you can see we perform exceptional work on Vessels of all sizes from even Jetski’s up to super yachts, our skilled team are devoted to their jobs and guided by our resident marine guru.
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.
1997 Model 20′ Bayliner 205, Trailer Boat with some surface cracking, aged/damaged paintwork and some more serious fractures on the port side. The boat had previously been epoxy primed and anti-foul painted, a feature the new owner would prefer not to have on a trailer boat. There was also some mechanical issues resulting from when a previous mechanic failed to secure the U-Joint/Shaft Bellows correctly causing water to enter the area damaging the gimbal bearing & entering the Mercruiser Alpha leg causing more damage. Finally a full set of new gauges to be installed and a full engine service. CleanaBoat is doing the works on this boat! From a gunnel strip down respray with a bunch of fibre glass repairs. 2 Pac respraying the blue stripe area & completely removing the previous antifoul repairing damage from years of use and restoring the hull to factory condition & even better than factory shine. This is a beautiful day boat and will certainly be a stunner by the time we are finished with her!
Currently still in progress, we will update with more pictures as we progress through the job! No Boat is to big or too small!
UPDATE! The Alpha leg repaired & all new bellows is back on the boat, the engine has been started and all is well mechanically! We are in the final preparation stages for spraying the Blue top section of the hull! Stay tuned for updates soon!
UPDATE! Blue has been sprayed, see pics! Along with the boat put on hard stand and the hull prep completed! remaining antifoul has been removed and a bunch of repairs completed, it’s now in hi build prepped and masked about to be sprayed! She is almost finished and looking like a brand new boat!
UPDATE! Hull is painted!! With Sterling Linear Epoxy Polyurethane 2 Pac white paint! And she is looking spectacular! You would be pressed to find a brand new baylinner looking as good as this old girl. Check out the lastest images below in the gallery!
UPDATE! The boat has its pin stripe added by stripe ‘n’ FX on the Gold Coast and the finishing touches have been completed to the engine, and the instrument cluster! See the new pics of the finishing touches and the boat back on its trailer!
This job was completed at the Gold Coast Marine Centre in Coomera where we regularly perform this type of work.
