What You Need to Know About Boat Hull Repair

As a yacht owner, you need to ensure that your prized possession gets ultimate protection from the elements no matter the season. This is particularly true when it comes to the hull which bears the brunt of everything.

You might have knowledge on boat repair and maintenance, but if you are not a professional, you will do more harm than good to your vessel. Hence, at the end of the day, nothing does it better than boat hull cleaning professionals.

In this article, you will discover the ways on how they give yachts a sweet makeover.

The gelcoat is the initial coating applied to the mould when a boat is built. A layer between half a centimeter to one centimeter thick, the mould is the by-product of two materials: first is a resin which is a type of plastic and the second is another plastic or polymer. Together, these two are cross linked, which means they alter chemically, forming the outer surface of the yacht. They are applied to the mould as a spray and the layers are built up over time; thus forming the hull.

The great thing about repairing the gelcoat is that it is a pretty straightforward process. The replacement coat for the boat hull repair can be found in liquid form which professionals paint on. To match the hull, the coats are fully cured and colored.

Does the hull have a hole? Given that the hull is curved, hole repair is easier done from the inside than on the outside. Layering the hole from the inside with your glass mats can fix the problem, and as the laminate dries it can be molded to the curves of the hull. Since this is a very delicate process, professionals study the area concerned before performing the repair. In the event that the hull gets ruptured to any degree, osmosis starts. Statistics show that one in four yachts suffers from osmosis.
