Bottom Paint

From your routine anti-fouling paint to a complete restoration of your hull, we do it all.

Once your vessel has been blocked on land we sand the bottom using sanding machines attached to vacuum equipment so as to contain the dust and protect the environment. The bottom is then tacked off and painted either by roller application or, for the racing fraternity who prefer a smooth finish, we use spray-painting equipment. The paint is allowed to dry before moving the boat stand supports so we can prep and paint these areas prior to launching, which usually takes place the next day.

We then clean the shaft and prop and replace the sacrificial anodes. Cleaning of underwater metals and sacrificial anodes are not included in the haul out and bottom paint estimate so ask your service manager what costs are associated with these tasks.
