11 Jan Nice one Sian!
We were pleased to welcome Sian Reynolds to a GRP Dinghy Repair Workshop recently. Sian won her place as a prize in the West Country Boat Repairs 2000 Millenium Series, sailing with Kev O’Brien.
By the end of the course she had learnt how to use gelcoat and fibreglass to repair small scratches, dents and holes on the hull to a professional standard so that the damage could not be seen.
Sian gave us some great feedback, “It was an amazing course and I learnt so much. It’s really boosted my confidence to carry out repairs and ensure a professional finish. I even got a course booklet to take home to refer to. The owner of the boat we worked on will be chuffed to bits with the work. Pete was excellent in his instruction and supervision and didn’t leave my side. The magic bit is, you wouldn’t even know the boat had been damaged let alone so loving repaired. It’s like magic! “
To book or discuss a workshop click here – participants are encouraged to bring their own boats to our premises in Lyndney, Glos. and make a repair as part of the workshop. We can also bring the workshop to your sailing club if you have a group of sailors wishing to take part, an option many clubs look at for the start or end of season.
