Osmosis Repair

Simply put, osmosis is the process of water migrating through the gel coat and into the fiberglass laminate, creating blisters that swell up, needing repair. Osmosis repair starts with removal of the gel coat, usually over the entire bottom, but sometimes only on the effected area’s. The hull is checked for dryness, and a epoxy barrier coating is applied before the finish coats. Since this can be an expensive procedure you want to make sure the job is done right the first time.
