4. I have to do a repair to the fiberglass on my boat. Do you have what I need? Answer
We recommend that you always start here, with Interlux’s Boat Painting Guide. You need Adobe to use this link. If you’d like a hard copy, or CD, drop in to the store and we’ll give you one!
Epifanes are the folks to ask those questions; we cannot say it any better. Here’s a link directly to their Q&A regarding all aspects of varnishing.
Two ways. If you are close to us simply drop in. We have all the chart catalogues. We stock all the charts from Halifax to Cape Sable and of course, the related publications. If you are not close to us, use this link to go to the CHS catalgue on line, determine what you need then give Bill a call at (902) 634-4301 and Bill will arrange to get you the supplies you need. Bill is our resident navigation expert. As a Master Mariner there probably isn’t a chart related question he can’t answer.
The answer is Yes. However, we will confess to two things. At this time, we too are fairly new to fiberglass and are learning as we go. We also only stock common fiberglass repair products at this time. However, we have a strong partner only an hour away that is very capable and has inventory we can access, often same day. If you are embarking on a more ambitious repair, check out this link. There may be materials that will allow you to do a better job. And yes, we can get them here for you.
