It is very important to the life of your gelcoat 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 be come unserviceable or matchable. We professionally compound, polish and wax by using two speed polishing tools with lambs wool 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. Antifoul is also a must once a year and we regularly apply two coats of fresh antifoul in International, Blakes, Seajet and other types of antifoul to a whole range of boats. We have also applied specialist racing antifoul, either by spraying or rollering to yachts with RORC orange marker regulations included if so desired. These and other types of antifoul are specialist and will require a stand alone estimate - please do not hesitate to contact us.
Minor repairs can be undertaken throughout the year and keep your boat looking pristine. If completed early enough, maintenance can clearly save expense in the long run as it may be possible to repair rather than replace, if not, then sometimes the only option is replace at considerable additional cost.
All boats should be buffed and polished, antifouled, anode's changed etc. at least once a year to maintain gelcoat strength integrity, as well as visual effect.
Antifoul and anode replacements are a necessity every year.
