    Default Need Fiberglass / Gel Shop Recommendations or Feedback

    Posted in the jet section too...

    I'm looking for a top notch fiberglass/gel shop. I'd like top quality work at a reasonable price from a place that really knows their stuff.

    Someone mentioned Pat's Fiberglass. Any experiences there or other recommendations? Nobody local to me seems to fit the bill, so I'm planning on a road trip to wherever the work is done and I won't be able to stop by and check in while the boat is there.

    The boat is a mid '80's hand laid Eliminator 18SS splash. Here's what I'd like to have done:

    • Full length stringers replaced and finished with the intent to leave them exposed
    • Thru transom exhaust holes filled
    • Fuel fill holes filled
    • Various small holes from ski racks, running lights, etc filled
    • Capped (hull to deck joint is butt construction)
    • Interior edges smoothed
    • Fix some crazing in the gel around the fuel fill holes and bulkheads
    • Gel bilge and inside of transom
    • Bottom has been blueprinted with Jack at MPD overseeing the work, but it's been quite a few years and I'd like to have it checked and touched up as needed
    • Gel is in excellent condition overall, but I'd want all the new work to blend flawlessly and the boat to be in like new condition.



    I realize this isn't going to be cheap, but with the cost of a brand new bare hull around $8500 bucks I'd like to be a ways under that. I'd appreciate any suggestions or feedback. Feel free to PM me.
