We all have those moments that lead to repairs -  a mistimed shore dump, a transport drama, hidden underwater snags, kids learning to reverse a car; the list goes on. Luckily the beauty of kayaks and skis, in particular composite ones, is that they are almost infinitely repairable.

We can work with fiberglass, carbon and kevlar layups and can make repairs to polyester, vinylester and epoxy resin builds. We can cater for a range of watercraft - not just fishing skis! Whether it's just a cosmetic touch up for an upcoming sale, a leak, or something more structural, we can organise quality repairs to get you back on the water without breaking the bank.
