We begin by removing all fixtures & fittings including windows to ensure all areas are treated and painted properly. 


We try to operate on a back-to-metal approach with all of our paint jobs.


Work starts by stripping all paint back to bare metal, before removing any rust by mechanical means. Any deeper pits can be chemically treated and filled with high quality steel filler before we apply the four primer coats. 



We usually apply a minimum of 9 coats of professional paint.


We at ease with either single or two pack paints and work closely with our customers to help them choose the best paint system for their boat and budget.


All the primer and undercoats are allowed to dry fully, before any machine sanding takes place. We then apply three coats of gloss and recommend Epifanes or International top coats.

We apply all our coats by hand, laying off with a brush to ensure a smooth surface which always requires minimal sanding.

Painting takes place in an insulated, heated and ventilated facility, and we keep a record of temperature and humidity levels throughout the process, being sure to paint to the manufacturers' data sheets.



We generally encourage customer to work with Meg from Scribe Signwriting as we're always impressed with her quality of work and ability to communicate clearly with our customer. 

Sometimes customers wish to use their own signwriters which is easy to arrange.


Whichever the choice we like all our customers to liase closely with the signwriter to develop new and enriching ideas that add the finishing touch to any paint job.

We then plan ahead to make sure that the final details and work flow fit within our schedule and work.



This includes a full interior clean, and any refitting/resealing any fixtures and fittings, including windows, which were removed from the boat as part of the preparation phase.

We will often go the extra mile for our customers, polishing up brass fittings such as mushroom vents and plank holders.

Of course, the whole process isn't a quick one, and it often takes 8 weeks to complete a full repaint.

We take lots of photos throughout the process and make these readily available for customers.



Each job is unique and we will require inspection of the boat prior to any agreement. We then provide a full written estimate which is valid until the work is complete.
