Looking for a Good Fiberglass Guy in MA/RI

Hey Guys-

I'm helping restore a storm salvage Cape Dory 30 and wanted to know if anyone knows of a good fiberglass fabrication/repair company in the Massachusetts or Rhode Island. Most of the basics, we can handle, but there are a few things we are thinking of farming out. We're possibly looking to get a few things repaired as well as have some custom pieces made up. Got any suggestions?

Thanks,

SD.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

No idea about that area but I had good success with two companies (both in Florida) for custom pieces. If you are interested - I'll post them here.

Brak-

Thanks, but I'd rather deal with some one locally....that way, if I'm not happy or more importantly if Dee isn't happy, we can beat on them personally.

I am comfortable recommending

Custom Fiberglass
275 River St
Weymouth, MA 02191-2264
781-337-0055


Richie Doyle does very good quality work at reasonable prices, can handle small to major jobs. Like most reliable craftsmen in the marine business, he gets a lot of work and may have a long gueue of pending projects - the sooner someone gets in the line the better.

Certified...in several regards...
