What makes for a great paint job?

 

There is more to a paint job than shine and luster.  Many contractors deliver beautiful paint work, but how does the work look after 5, 10, or 20 years.  You should not have to respray your boat at the beginning and end of every decade.

 

At Fairview Marina we believe that great paint work comes down to the preparation

 

We skip none of the steps that many outfits skip to get the job out the door.

 

What is the result?

 

Paint work that stands the test of time.

What is involved in a Bottom Job at Fairview Marina?

 

First we run tarps under the entire area under the boat.

 

Next we prep every square inch of the bottom with a vacuum assisted sander.

 

We gently feather the pealing areas of the bottom

 

Next we  scrape and wire-wheel the running gear.

 

Once prep is complete, we wash the entire boat.  Upper deck to the Bottom. Then we wash all the surrounding boats.

 

Most yards skip this step.  However, post prep washing is very important.  First, washing the bottom removes dust, which promotes adhesion. Second washing the entire boat and the surrounding boats prevents copper stains from the sanding dust.  Copper stains are unsightly and difficult to remove.

 

We allow the bottom to dry.  Once dry we neatly apply a premium antifoulant paint.
