Boat Yard Services
At 4WD we also provide boat maintenance and repair services, through Boat Yard Bonaire.
Our specialty is work under the water line, annual antifouling, anti osmosis treatments and also repairs with polyester, fiberglass and epoxy.
As a rule, any vessel that is permanently moored in the water should be cleaned and anti-fouled every 12-18 months. Antifouling is not the only thing that should be monitored and regularly checked. Anodes, skin fittings and water intakes should also be checked regularly.
Antifouling is an incredibly important part of routine boat care, affecting the performance of your boat, fuel economy and also the long term condition of boat. By inhibiting marine growth on the bottom of your boat, you will ensure that your boat performs at its peak level all year routine.
What can we do for your boat?
Meticulous preparation before application is the key to our success. Since every boat is unique we may also recommend diving on the hull before booking it in to be lifted out of the water.
A blister that is considered Osmosis is typically a result of moisture being trapped within the fiberglass below the gelcoat and or top coatings causing softening in those areas.
We take care of the general maintenance of your boat. Please request a quote for long-term services. We have weekly and monthly programs to keep your boat in good condition.
