GRP and Repairs

It is one thing to make seaworthy repairs or alterations to GRP boats – it is quite another to accomplish the seamless ‘invisible mend’ achieved by our laminate specialists. Highly trained, practised and experienced, they consider any other outcome unacceptable and an affront to both their professional standards and the whole Mylor Marine Team craft ethic.

As a result, we are a first port of call for high-quality insurance work involving collisions, escapes from moorings, keel and rudder repairs following lost arguments with rocks, and superstructure damage – both to laminates and gel coats. Our GRP technicians are as adept at patching a punched hole as they are at polishing out scratches and colour matching; every job attracts the same obsessive attention to detail.

Their skills include out osmosis treatment; not only the finishing but also dealing with any nasty surprises uncovered during preparation, such as cracks and laminate bonding breakdown.
We are in great demand because the marine industry trusts our integrated approach to boat repair. Our GRP specialists work hand-in-hand with our engineers and shipwrights on all renovation and alteration projects, whether interior modifications or the installation of new equipment, as part of a closely-managed workforce.
We are also regarded as a ‘centre of excellence’ for the terrific quality of our finishes – but our painters would be the first to acknowledge that without the ‘canvas’ provided by the laminators, they would be unable to achieve their own consistently superb results.
