Harbour Force Commercial Marine Detailing Gold Coast provide a full and comprehensive repair service for boats.
Gelcoating provides a high-quality finish and protective layer to fibreglass boats. Over time your vessel, due to regular exposure to sun and salt water will fade, develop cracks, scratches and experience corrosion and staining.
As a boat owner, you have a few different options when it comes to repairing gelcoat.
Contact Harbourforce to discuss size, damage & Colour.
Underwater Hull Cleaning
The build-up of biofouling on the hull, running gear and propellers can make an enormous difference to your speed and fuel economy. On planing boats light levels of fouling can significantly reduce top speeds and increase fuel consumption by more than 25%. Maintain your bottom paint’s performance and to stretch the time between haul-outs for applying new bottom paint, regular cleaning of your boat’s hull should be performed regularly.
Mechanical & Electrical Servicing
Just like your car, you should take your boat to get serviced regularly to keep your electrics, engines and generators powering. Harbourforce Marine work with an array of experienced and trustworthy boat marine service mechanics. We can help with inboard and outboard engine servicing across all engine brands. Whether you require vessel rewiring, maintainence services, transducer testing, installation services or even anchor winch repairs, Harbourforce can coordinate this with your other services while the vessel is out of water.
Gelcoat is usually much thicker than paint and is engineered to protect the underlying fiberglass as well as provide a smooth shiny appearance. Paint is thinner and typically much easier to apply. Unlike paint, gelcoat will not adhere to existing paint, wood, metal or concrete. Gelcoat also has a limited shelf life of approximatly 3-4 months, Paints that are solvent-based could last 15 years while latex and water-based paints could last for up to 10 years.
Gelcoat and 2-pack boat repairs are a specialized repair available from us – not many people can colour match gelcoat like we do.
