Good fiberglass guy in Baltimore area?

I recently had some damage to the keel of my Newport 28, where a piece of the trailing edge was torn off. My insurance company told me to go ahead and get an estimate of the work, but I don't have a clue of where to go.

Can anyone make a recommendation? The boat is on Rock Creek in a cradle right now.

Thanks!

Call Oak Harbor Marina, in Rock Creek. You would have to take the boat there, but Frank does excellent work. My boat neighbors hull was damaged from a piling with screws sticking out and now you would never know it...close to perfection.

Oak Harbors man does great work, I agree with Chef. So does Fairhaven on Rock Creek. Mark at Fairhaven is difficult to deal with though and Oak Harbor tends not to deliver on time. Pick your poison. Both do excellent work.

Here's the pic I took with my phone before it was cleaned up:

Here's another vote for Oak Harbor. Great bunch of folks. People that decent are few and far between.

is your keel metal or is it incapsilated metal? i would think that is all metal where it was "ripped" off, is it just fairing over metal?

it does not look bad, the worse part is just building it up so the trailing edge has the right shape.

It appears to be a metal keel with a big wrapper of fiberglass and some kind of hard foam. It's certainly not all-metal with just paint over it.

As for Oak Harbor, that's right across Rock Creek from where I am. Do you suppose I could splash her as is and motor across to the creek for repair without damaging things any further? She would probably be in the water for no more than 15 minutes, tops.

Assuming she's not leaking badly, of course. I could check for that while still suspended in the sling and pull her if water started gushing in.

you could run it across the way, i would paint it with epoxy first. they will wind up grinding it all off, but its better to seal it for the trip than risk having it get wet and have to sit to dry

I didnt mean to imply the people at Oak harbor werent good. They are the best and very nice. The issue is with timeliness of finishing thier work.
