The traditional cure for wet core repair is very destructive and compromises the designed integrity of your vessel. The laminate is removed above or below the core, the wet core is removed and replaced, and finally the laminate is replaced. This is a nasty, costly job and rarely produces a product that is as good as the original. It is impossible to achieve a fiberglass bond as good as the original and very difficult to make the repair look as good as the original. Whether the problem is wet stringers, wet decks, wet transom, wet hull bottoms or wet hull sides, all of the same issues apply. DRYBOAT® is the non-destructive solution to this problem.
Here's what DRYBOAT®'s satisfied customers are saying:
“I was involved on the first vessel DRYBOAT® was ever used on back in 2004. This boat was sold after using the process to dry out wet stringers and some coring. I just sold this same boat again, 10 years later, and it passed survey with flying colors"
“The DRYBOAT® drying system is superior and far more efficient than anything we have developed ourselves. I refer our dealers and boat owners to DRYBOAT® whenever they have elevated moisture issues "
“I recently did a pre-buy survey on a 43’ Portofino that the DRYBOAT® process was used on back in 2006. The only areas showing elevated moisture were areas DRYBOAT® did NOT service back in 2006.”
“Very professional, boat just surveyed dry during sale. You were referred to me by a friend who was also very happy with your service”
“DRYBOAT® performed their services at our facility on a 54' Hatteras. Both sides were wet and blistered. The core was Divinycell (foam core). We were amazed, and customer was ecstactic with the success of DRYBOAT®."
“Cost me one-third of the lowest estimate I received to cut out and replace. Very happy with the (short) time it took and the cost savings”
“You can use me as a reference anytime, DRYBOAT® took a couple of months and the builder took care of the finish work under warranty, total of three months.”
“I always try to let customers know DRYBOAT® may be viable alternative. I was recently the surveyor on a buy/sell and if DRYBOAT® had not been used to dry out the stringers, deck and part of the transom, the vessel might have been scrapped. That would have been a shame because it was a beautiful 1984 Viking that had a ton of character and was mechanically sound.”
This boat was splashed in summer of 2013 and utilized by current owner since that time.
“I am very happy with the results. (DRYBOAT®) stands by their work. I highly recommend them”.
This boat has since passed survey and sold.
“I was involved in the sale of an 80 foot motor yacht a few years ago and we found high moistures readings in the core. The core was foam not balsa. DRYBOAT® was contracted to dry the core. A marine surveyor oversaw the project and the moisture readings showed a big improvement. When the boat was splashed again the surveyor said the hull should be good for another 30 years.”
