The "Ugly Duckling" Dinghy Restoration

The ugly Duckling was an abandoned fiberglass boat and Ralph sought our advice on whether it could be resurrected. Here is the result using Bote-Cote Marine Epoxy Resin to repair her and AQUACOTE water based Epoxy Undercoat & water based polyurethane Topcoat Paints to make her look beautiful. Four years on and she is still going strong.
