The general attitude among boat owners is that Gelcoat work is ‘easy’. The opposite is far more the reality. Any boat owner who properly reads the instructions for gelcoat repair, and attempts even a simple job, quickly finds that the time required and the potential for horrible results...call for a professional approach.
One of the key elements to safe and efficient boating is proper care of hulls and bottom treatments. Day sailors, off shore fishers, coastal cruisers, serious racing sailboats, trawlers, multihulls, shrimpers and work boats of all sizes benefit from FIBʼs meticulous bottom work.
Flat Island Boat Works has been a very impressive team to work with. Their attentiveness and quality craftsmanship are the characteristics we expect when spending money on our boats. The owner, Mike Bredesen, is always willing to provide cost effective suggestions on making repairs. There were times when he explained if certain areas were outside his specialty & would refer me to top-notch technicians in the area. We all know the expression "birds of feather...." Well it appears the talent in the area do work together, and Flat Island and it's team are definitely part of the flock!
