Repair & Refurbishment

Porters have always offered a comprehensive boat repair and renovation service. We employ craftsmen who are able to complete all manner of work to the highest standards. Our repair work is approved by all the major marine insurers.
As you would expect we specialise in the repair and renovation of any class of dinghy be it a small gel repair or a complete hull rebuild or redeck of a wooden boat.
We have in recent months repaired boats involved in major motorway impacts, sustained major damage with collisions with larger craft , been abraded on rocks as well as the more mundane polishing work involved in GRP hulls.

The photographs illustrate some of the more minor repairs that our craftsmen have repaired varying from scrapes, to holes to failure of moulded components. We still hold many moulds of models out of production so that we can manufacture tabernacles, hatch covers, rear tanks for many Wanderers and Wayfarers and GRP seats and removable rear boxes  for Wayfarer Worlds. We have also carried out repairs to some craft that required substantial rebuilding to restore the craft to its prior to accident condition.  

Renovations are a further area of expertise with boats coming in for polishing out Ultra Violet light fade of the pigment within the gel coat, re-varnishing of wooden components, re-rigging work and all aspects to rejuvenate the older boat.


Porters also specialise in industrial GRP mouldings, we are major suppliers to the building industry and the health service. In the past we have also completed a great deal of work for the Ministry of Defence.
If you would like any further details, please do not hesitate to contact us.
