Other Work

Dry Dock

Visible refurbishment activity always draws attention and other owners thinking of having similar work undertaken are often curious as to where recent works have been carried out and what exactly has been done. Members who have had works completed by specific boatyards and are well pleased with the results are usually only to happy to share the details. Sometimes the trigger for such questions is that a particular boat is seen out & about & looking extra polished/shiny. Since we actually physically meet up 1:1 fairly infrequently, this page will hopefully help answer some of those questions.

This page contains links to suppliers and services used by fellow members with their own unsolicited comments. The HSBC makes no particular recommendation or endorsement by including them on these pages, as one customers experience or perception can markedly differ from another's based on circumstances pertaining at the time. The same probably applies to prices as the job content can vary markedly depending on the approach to quoting and actually doing the job itself. We do not publish member contact details but we are happy to act as a messaging channel to establish "first contact". The rest is then up to individuals.

If you are looking for information concerning suppliers of parts, custom fittings, modifications etc please see our Services and Suppliers and Tech Tips pages.

Roof repaint (respray with 2 pack) Our Safari roof suffered repeated heavy oxidation and "bloom" coming through the paint. We had tried many and progressively more intense treatments (T-Cut, G3, G10, 3000 grade Wet & Dry etc) - all of which  only worked for a short time before symptoms reappeared usually after about 2 weeks! The problem is evidently caused by effects UV sunlight on "softer" dark colour pigments with red being the worst affected. Roof repainted (resprayed) by Southgates of Horning to a high quality finish with the job being completed on time and on quote during August 2019. Highly recommended. Y Dave & Trish (Free Spirit)
