Been gifted a Row Boat

Featured Posts



I have been gifted a fibre glass row boat. (I live next to a canal)


Is there anything i can paint on the bottom of boat to make it water tight, its not going to live in the water but was informed by previous owner there is a very slight slow leak somewhere from where its been dragged in and out of water


Thank you

Plenty of videos on YoutTube - search GRP boat repairs.


But basically, sand it down, get some epoxy resin, some glass matt fibre, wet it out , do it layers, let it go off... then two-part epoxy gel coat paint to finish.  


I have no affiliation but these guys are good - plenty of other suppliers out there: https://www.easycomposites.co.uk/epoxy-resin
