When it comes to exterior and interior care and maintenance boats are very different from cars. Boats loose their value faster than any other vehicle, one because the owners don't know how to properly maintain them and secondly the elements deliver havoc to its gel-coat, vinyl, carpets, plastics, wood, chrome, and fiberglass.  Today's boats are very expensive, and if not taken care of properly, they can be expensive to fix.  I have the skills, experience and products to care for your boat.  At a minimum, boats should be cared for once a year.

As you can see, a boats finish will dull (oxidation) over time, with proper yearly care you can keep the shine, protection, and new look.

Look at both sides of this bow - the right side is horrible with oxidation; the left is polished out and ready for a sealant.

 Even white gel coats will glow!  Better yet they are ready to inhibit UV rays that destroy a boats gel coat.



Hard water build up, oxidation, and no UV protection.  This needs the full package detail!

You can see closely the amount of hard water build up, and the total lack of shine and gloss.


This is how the boat should look! This is before any gel-coat wax/sealant was used. Almost ready to hit the water in style.

Close-up shot of the level of shine and gloss.

You can clearly see the detail of care in this transformation.  Compare this to the before picture above.

"I recently bought a 96 Malibu wakeboarding boat. It was in bad shape with horrible oxidation issues on the paint. Greg worked his magic and it looks new! It looks a ton better. Lets go boating; I owe you one. Thanks Greg!!"
