Testimonials for the repair work by Jo Line

Below are just a few testimonials for work carried out by The Boat Repair Centre, Weston-super-Mare.

Having seen ‘Temujin’ this weekend I had to say how impressed I was with your work.  The blending in of the teak in particular really stands out – or not as the case may be!

Within days we had a very detailed reply offering 3 options of Antifouling. Each one gave a detail of its benefits together with the cost of labour & materials.

We decided on Coppercoat which although the most expensive would last the longest & be the most cost effective.

An order was placed & we were given a date when the work would be carried out as we were going to deliver the boat to her premises on our trailer.  The work was carried out on time & the finished results looked very professional with sharp lines

Cleaning the hull now takes 10 minutes with a jet wash & no swearing !!!!

Would we use Jo Line again ? YES without doubt

Highly recommended. Well known and well thought of in the boating community based in Portishead.

Always honest , reliable and on time - or will say if running late. Work excellent. Advice appreciated.

Jo is even prepared to work on a yacht (Achilles 9m) made in Wales and owned by a Welshman.....almost enough to forgive her for being English.....

Excellent professional service - great with carbon.  Would recommend the boat repair centre without doubt. 

Repaired severley damaged carbon catamaran hull (as new), hydrofoil masts and kite surfing boards.

Jo is the only person I use to work on my Eclipse 33, and has done so for over ten years.

Her work is fantastic - just book early to avoid disappointment!

We’re very pleased with the quality of the work done and also that you were able to start quite quickly and your flexibility whilst doing the job.

We’d have no hesitation in recommending you to others.

Totally professional!

This winter after some serious hull damage my repairs were undertaken by Jo at the Boat Repair Centre.

All work was completed to the very highest standard, on time and on budget. No mess was left, no little unresolved niggles, everything was utterly professional.

Not only do I recommend them, you can visit my boat and see for yourself.

Jo has done a number of repairs for us over the last 10 years from replacing teak seating in the cockpit to minor (and more major-oops!) gel coat repairs.

Her work is always to a high standard and her friendly honest approach is beyond reproach. Keep up the good work Jo, but hope we don't need to call on you again any time soon!

Jo has completed a number of jobs on my Fairline Squadron 50, from small gel coat repairs to a complete strip back of the old anti fouling and replacement with Coppercoat.

All work has been carried out to my complete satisfaction, I would recommend The Boat Repair Centre to anyone without hesitation.

Jo Line carried out several jobs for us in autumn 2017. She installed a watertight bulkhead to prevent water getting in to the boat via the Webasto exhaust, she repaired two de-laminating locker hatches, she made good an old repair which had been done badly by someone before we bought our boat, and she repaired some minor gelcoat damage caused when another boat struck us.

The quality of the work was very good indeed and the price was reasonable. Jo is well known for her colour-matching skills and I simply cannot see the join between her work and the original gelcoat on our 12 year old boat. Our boat can be seen on Youtube - search for Nordhavn 40 Coracle.
