Peerless repair for storm damaged Duchess

Boat repair storm damage Cornwall
Duchess of Helford
Vessel Type: 
Channel Island 32
Project Type: 

Duchess of Helford suffered extensive damage in a storm after breaking free from her mooring and colliding with several vessels and a granite quay.

The damage was substantial. FBC carried out extensive gel repairs to the roof and wheelhouse and the team repaired the laminate damage sustained to the hull at the multiple points of impact. In fact the deck, hull and cockpit needed significant repair. FBC replaced the windows and completely remodelled both the bathing platform and the diving ladder.

Finishing the hull in an AWLGRIP paint system made her as new once again as is fit for a Duchess.
