Fabrication and overplating
Steelwork requirements are often a result of a survey and usually tailored to the individual vessel. Instructions are best forwarded from the surveyor directly to us, to avoid any miscommunication about what is required.
Boats that need steelworks will need to be discussed in detail before booking. Every single job is unique and therefore the price is quoted based on individual requirements. We will always be open and honest about the cost, the time and the work involved, so you can make an informed decision.

Avoiding expensive Steelwork
Working with steel is a skillful job which needs a trusted hand. Here at P&S Marine we can offer the necessary expertise and give your hull a brand new, well deserved lease of life.
Your hull is made from steel plate which loses its protective layer over time. Older boats can become thin and pitted, and as a consequence require over-plating to reinforce. This can be a full or partial hull, and will extend the life of your boat.
You boats steel hull will have a much extended life if you regularly pressure wash, leaving a good clean surface to paint on the 2 coats of SML Bitumen (not Epoxy) either yourself or we do this for you.
Anodes fitted on both the sides (standard) and the baseplate (low profile) will prolong the health of your hull.

How thick should my hull be?
A hull survey will look at the general sea worthiness of the vessel including hull, propulsion and steering. This is aimed at the prospective buyer as pre-purchase survey or for an owner to gauge condition of the hull for remedial work. Ultrasonic testing can determine the amount of corrosion and damage to the hull in more detail. We always advise the buyer has a survey to ensure up to date and accurate information about the boat.
