& GRP Repair Services
23 years of Experience in Various Cases
Take a look below at some of the services we offer at Bow to Stern. If you don't see the service you need then get in touch to have a chat.
GRP/ Gel Coat Repairs
We believe we have the best gel coat colour-matches in the business. We specialise in fiberglass repairs – be it renovating old tired fiberglass and doing away with imperfections or dealing with more severe accident damage.
The key to our reputation is the ability to match the colour. Stare into any hull and you will see it has slight colour variations at different depths of the paintwork. Matching this multi-depth, multi-colour finish is an art form.
Different depths show different colours. New gel coats must be colour matched at all levels to provide that seamless finish. Joinery, especially when a fire damaged, can provide an exciting challenge. Our shipwrights meet the same standard as the GRP team – all repair work will be immaculate.
Whatever the scale of repair we will be happy to provide a detailed estimate and, if sought, will make suggestions of other main servicing work that can usefully be undertaken at the same time.
Anti Foul and Anti Osmosis Coating
Over a period of years, the bottom of your boat will have a heavy build-up of antifoul paint. This can result in your boat’s efficiency being significantly marred. It may also hide problems that are becoming prevalent in the hull itself, such as osmosis.
By removing this layer of antifoul gives the opportunity to inspect your hull, effect repairs, or take preventative action.
Antifoul and anti osmosis are a must once a year and we regularly apply two coats of fresh antifoul and anti osmosis treatment to a whole range of boats.
Boat Polishing and Finishing
It is very important to the life of your gel coat and the boat's general appearance, to buff, polish and wax at least once a year. If this is not done, Gelcoat can turn "milky" and become unserviceable or matchable.
We professionally compound, polish, and wax by using two-speed polishing tools with lambswool heads and our prices are surprisingly small for such a good end result. Buffing and polishing can also identify any areas of previously unforeseen damage, such as stress cracks, but can also remove some small scratches and scuffs in the application.
Internal and External Valeting
We provide a wide range of yacht valeting and boat cleaning services from deep, one-off or start-up cleans to ongoing, regular care. Whether you own a luxury cruising yacht, a performance sailboat, or a large powerboat or motor yacht, we will keep your vessel looking tip-top and pristine on the water as well as ensure she is well protected from the harsh marine environment and UV rays.
From cleaning the decks to polishing the hull we’ll have your boat gleaming in no time at all. We use high quality, marine-specific cleaning products to make sure your sailing or motorboat is protected, looking its best, and working efficiently.

While it takes a really bad case of osmosis – with blisters the size of saucers – to put you in any danger of leaking, osmosis causes the value of your boat to fall by the cost of a professional repair, which will usually run into thousands of pounds.
Even the worst cases of osmosis can be professionally treated, and while the process is expensive and time-consuming, it will revive the boat and restore its value.
