    HIGHLY RECOMMENDED: Following an incident which resulted in the hull on my F18 being split down one of the bows I took my boat into Paintcraft for repair. They were approved my insurer and close to
    home so seemed the logical choice. I was doubtful that any repairer would get the boat looking good again but Nigel assured me it would be perfect. I also decoded, that whilst it was in for the main
    repair I would have both hulls refurbished, to remove 2 years of campaign scars and damage caused by my previous crew scraping trapeze hook down the hull making 2 nice scars, which I had repaired
    myself so I could continue to race, but the repairs were not that good. Basically the boat is 4 years old and was looking a bit worse for wear.

    The boat has been with Paintcraft for just over 2 weeks and I collected it today (November 2013). To say I was left with the “Wow Factor “would be an understatement. The boat looks amazing, the
    colour match on the gelcoat is spot, you can not even see its been repaired, and the refurbished hulls look almost like new….it looks so good I am going be scared t race it (only joking). The work on
    the boat has been completed in great time, meaning I can get back on the water and race, and the results have genuinely exceeded my expectations. I would also say, that Paintcraft have been a great
    company to do business with. Would I use them again, absolutely, definitely. As stated above HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

    I only hope Nigel puts up some before and after pictures.....
