Does anyone know of a good fiberglass/gelcoat restorer and repairer in New England? My 1983 13' Sport needs to have some holes in the transom filled, chips and dings repaired, and probably a new gelcoat to be sprayed in order to restore the orginal desert tan gelcoat which has turned bright white over the last 18 years. Also, does anyone know what the price range of this might be? Thanks.

I was at a Whaler dealer in Cinti last summer and there was a guy who called on boat yards that did it portable from a van and he was very good. I watched him and talked to him and picked up some good ideas. Perhaps there is someone like that in your area. Call your local dealer service man. I know this guy was good and very reasonable.

Call First Class Fiberglass, 18 Joseph Street, Kingston,MA 02364

They do the best work!!
No affiliation...

They did a hell of a job restoring my Outrage 18.

The owner, Henry Smith runs the shop with the help of his son, Steven.

Henry worked for Boston Whaler for over 20yrs in Rockland. He has the knowledge to restore any whaler.
I plan on getting more work done to my boat by him this winter.

Hope this helps!

Outrage 18-
Thanks a lot. This definitely looks promising. What did you have him do, and about how much did it cost? Thanks again.

I had him do the entire outside hull.
I had a few gouges,scrapes, remove an old name from the side..alot of work.. he made it look like new.
I also had him put on new decals & stripes.

It did cost me about $2300.
This year is all about the inside..
Good luck!
