We work on most composite boats under 24' including power fishing boats, drift boats, skiffs, canoes, kayaks, wave runners, SUPs, and surf boards. From major hull damage to minor boat repair and everything custom in between. We also have in-house CAD design capabilities, CNC machining, and a full service paint booth for professionally finishing your project.

The following is a list of example projects. If you don't see your idea below please contact us and we will be excited to discuss your project.

  • Boat Repair & Restoration
  • Dry Boxes
  • Live Wells
  • Battery Boxes
  • Rod and Gear Storage Trays
  • Anchor Line Internal Routing
  • Motor Mounts
  • Seating
  • Decking
  • Leglocks
  • Engravings
  • Custom Projects!

Projects are billed at time (hourly rate listed) plus materials, or we offer free bids on a per job basis too.

Don't worry about choosing the materials or the best equipment for your project. Our engineer will take care of all the design work for you. Worry less, fish more! We just want to let your know your options so please read on if interested and contact us if you need more info.


Reinforcements: Fiberglass, carbon fiber, and kevlar.

Binders: The top grade marine epoxies used are strong, impact resistant, and excellent against fatigue.  They are resistant to peeling, cracking, corrosion and chemical degradation.

Core Materials: Marine foam, wood, metal, and composite core materials offer a plethora of options that can be tailored to your specific application.  They decrease the overall part weight while increasing durability and appearance.


Vacuum Infusion is an automated process that reduces variability and tightly controls the amount of resin.  This is important because infused parts have less voids to serve as failure points, are stronger and lighter. 

Vacuum Bagging seals a composites part after the reinforcement has been wet out with the binder.  The vacuum compresses the part, reducing the overall weight and presence of voids.

Hand Layup requires extensive worker skill but is a useful technique during the fabrication of composite small parts and repair or modification of boats.
