Marine painting is a complex task that requires the professionals
Preparation is key
To achieve the best results from the paint, the preparation needs to be precise and flawless. Any unevenness in the fairing becomes obvious once paint is applied. Any dust or contamination on surfaces can cause the paint adhesiveness to deteriorate or cause chemical reactions within the coating.
Knowledge and Expertise
Painting your boat is a technical undertaking and product knowledge is a key part of the process. Certain products may not adhere together well, therefore when re-painting your vessel it is important that whoever is preparing the boat is also painting it. This ensures the products used will be cohesive and workmanship consistent to achieve a high-quality result.

The right coat for your vessel
Fairing & Hull Preparation
Fairing is the process of filling holes, scratches and shallow voids, reshaping contours or grinding down bumps to blend and prepare the boat hull prior to painting.
Excellent preparation is the key to an excellent paint finish. Our highly dedicated team have years of experience and a keen eye to ensure the highest quality results are achieved consistently, every time.
Anti-foul coatings should be applied annually or if the paint has been scraped or damaged, or if persistent fouling is occurring. Marine Reflections are experts in boat maintenance and can haul, clean, prepare and apply anti-foul to your vessel as part of a regular maintenance schedule.

Maintenance – Exterior Surfaces
A lot of people think that if you leave a gel-coat surface for three years it will just cut and polish back to a satisfactory standard. This is not the case. If you leave a gel-coat surface for three years it typically takes 4 to 5 times longer to restore (and is more expensive) than by doing an annual cut and polish as part of a regular maintenance schedule.
