Boat Repair and Renovations MN

MN Boat Repair & Restoration Is your boat ready for the open water this season? Is your boat showing wear from years of trailering, rocks, and docks? When your boat’s surface has been scratched, damaged or the paint has started to chip, it can compromise its structural integrity. Like all boats, they require care and attention. Check periodically for serious dents, cracks and loose rivets at points of stress. Don’t wait for it to get worse. Hulls can need repair as a result of damage, delamination, or deterioration from water or sun exposure. Cracks, holes, soft areas, and crushed fiberglass can be repaired or replaced extending the life of your boat many years. We can work wonders with damaged fiberglass. Before you conclude that your boat has seen its last day in the water, see us. It may have many years of life left in it!

It has to transmit the full power of the engine to the rest of the hull, as well as carry the pounding of the hull back to the engine. The great forces exerted between the engine and the hull come to a focus at the transom. Eventually, the transom may deteriorate and weaken to the point that your boat is not seaworthy. Your boat is not lost if the transom has lost its integrity. We can either strengthen it or replace it altogether. Shown here – 2001 20′ Red Metal-flake Tuffy, with a Mercury 225 EFI This job was extremely challenging, as the transom was replaced without removing...
