The Metallic Spot Repair of the Sportfish MAKARA
It is not uncommon for a sportsfish boat to have its paint scratched when catching large fish. It was with this in mind that owner of sportsfish Makara, a Viking 65' EB, wanted to select a metallic paint that could be repaired.
During the refit of the 2001 built vessel, the repairability was needed earlier than expected. After completing an excellent finish of the hull, a section of the scaffold dropped during stormy weather and scratched the hull in eight sections. The ALEXSEAL® metallic blender had to be called into action. “Luckily the painter did not have to repaint the entire hull side”, said the happy owner. “Supported by the ALEXSEAL® metallic repair recommendation and with technical assistance of the local ALEXSEAL® team, the painters at Maza Boat Corp in Florida were able to achieve a flawless metallic blend repair on the starboard hull.” Time saved, money saved – mission complete.
