Maritime and Marine Services
There is nothing better than taking your boat out on the weekend to enjoy some much needed RnR. Whether its alone time or spending time with a loved one, a boat is the perfect way to make life feel a little less full on. Whilst owning a boat may seem luxurious, boat restoration is not.
Boats must be washed down after each trip. They must go through a thorough clean on a regular basis in order to prevent rust caused by sea water and marine life. After having owned a boat for an extended period of time, certain aspects of the boat may need rehabilitation. FCT offer both paint stripping, paint restoration and anti-fhouling services for your boat!
Paint Stripping and Boat Restoration
If you’re looking to remove the paintwork FCT are able to provide paint stripping services for you! Using methods such as sandblasting, we can remove any existing layers of paint. This will return the surface of your boat to its original state and prepare the surface to be painted in the future. If you also need paint restoration services, FCT can provide a new layer of paint to make your boat look brand new. If you’re just looking for a revamp or wanting a whole new look for your boat, we can get the job done with the most effective and efficient methods.
What is Antifouling?
Antifouling is an underwater paint applied to the hull of the boat to slow or facilitate the detachment of subaquatic organisms. This is a specialized coating that can also act as a barrier against corrosion on metal hulls. The benefit of antifouling is the increased performance and durability of the vessel without any subaquatic particles.
If the hull of your boat is showing signs of:
- Paint coming off – paint is peeling off and leaving jagged edges.
- Water being trapped between the hull and the flaking paint
- Craters – i.e. the hull is no longer smooth.
FCT will prepare your boat to be antifouled by pressure washing the bottom and removing any remaining sea growth.
