On an old TV show from the 1960s, a man and his son are shown out on a lake in a boat, enjoying the day fishing. To add a bit of comedy to the show, the pair discovers that their little rowboat has a leak. They scramble to shore before sinking and end up with nothing more than wet shoes and pant legs. Of course, if something like this happens in real life, we might not be so quick to see the humor in the situation. As boating season approaches, it is time to make the necessary repairs to ensure that our boats are ready for the water. Anchor Marine Repair can help you!
Structural Boat Repair In Minnesota
Anchor Marine Repair can fix any kind of structural problem that just about any boat has developed. Please note, however, that our services do not include mechanical (re: engine) work. If your boat has been damaged by debris that you struck in the water, a storm, by the impact of an accident while on the way to your dock, or if it has been damaged as a result of prolonged exposure to weather extremes, we can make repairs so that you can be confident about not having to scramble to shore before sinking.
Many of the issues we see are related to impact damage. Fiberglass boats that suffer impact damage often require patching so that the boat will not take on water. As strong as fiberglass is, when impact occurs and the fiberglass fractures, the structural integrity of the material must be restored. Anchor Marine Repair’s staff are experts in the use and repair of the material. And once the damage has been repaired, we can refinish the repaired portion of the boat to match the original color scheme, which will make it look as though no impact damage had ever occurred.
Fiberglass And Aluminum Boat Repair
Impact damage to aluminum boats will not necessarily result in taking on water. Aluminum is a softer and more flexible substance, which means it is more likely to dent. Dents of some severity can have a negative effect on the efficiency of a boat’s travel through water, so it is important to repair dents. Aluminum failure is more likely with tearing damage. As with fiberglass, our staff are experts in the repair of aluminum too. If your boat needs repair, Anchor Marine Repair is up for the job. Call us at (763) 972-3540 with any questions.
