MarkMT 68 Posted December 6, 2022 Share Posted December 6, 2022 Hi all, I'm looking for recommendations of someone I can get to do a few cosmetic hull repairs on my small composite racing catamaran. Background... A very, very long time ago (2011 actually!), I asked for some advice here about shipping a small racing catamaran from the US to NZL. At the time, I was looking at being in NZ three months a year, but there were no obviously good solutions so nothing came of it and life went on, including lots of sailing. Fast forward to the near present and I've eventually ended up moving back to NZ permanently - long story, complicated by COVID, but I finally sold up in the US a few months back. And happily I did find a way to bring the F16 back with me from Chicago. Not an insignificant cost, but in the context of a boat I love that I've had years of pleasure from, a rising US dollar and selling my house at the top of the US market, it turned out to be a pretty easy decision. So the boat is here, but after a good number of years racing, it has a few cosmetic bumps and scrapes that I'd like to get tidied up. The boat is gelcoat on kevlar/foam. Outside my skillset, so I'd like to find someone trustworthy who'll do a great job. So any recommendations of someone whose expertise you think I can count on would be much appreciated. The boat is temporarily in Waihi and I'm in the Bay of Islands, so anywhere in between would be fine. A few photos attached in case anyone's interested...
