Fiberglass, Kevlar, Carbon Fiber
The composites team at Svendsen's Bay Marine is more versed in fiberglass, kevlar, and carbon fiber repair and new design than any other boatyard in the San Francisco Bay Area. Fiberglass mat, cloth, biaxial and unidirectional materials are the most pervasive boat repair medium, but we are also conversant with carbon fiber and kevlar reinforcements. For repairs, we duplicate the original laminate schedule and for modifications we follow specific guidelines from naval engineers and architects to achieve strong yet lightweight results for vessels in all marine applications.
We use a scientific gel coat matching process that achieves excellent results, even for the most aged and faded gel coats. Our application process ranges from small repairs to long-boarding Superyacht hulls and application of gel coat.
For sailboats in the racing circuits, we can combine strength with lightweight laminates and perform bottom, keel, rudder fairing to the degree requested by the owner. We understand that the smallest details can be the deciding factor at the finish line.
