Central to answering any Marine Projectʼs demands is the ability FIB has created to accurately estimate costs, pre-test project/component feasibility and then ʻcoordinateʻ the assembly of professionals for virtually any size Marine Project.
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.
Integrity. Skill. Creativity. Reliability. I'm satisfied when I discover that the business I'm dealing with has any one of these qualities. Flat Island Boatworks has demonstrated all of these attributes every time I deal with them. Mike Bredesen is a true craftsman in every sense of the word and a pleasure to deal with. I own a high tech, cold-molded epoxy and Xynole custom-designed ketch - it's a very demanding material to work with and easily mangled by the lesser skilled "glass patcher'. Mike has done absolutely amazing work on it, and his team of technicians have never failed to come up with the perfect fix to any challenge! I won't let anyone else touch my boat for repairs, modifications, or upgrades.
