Replacement Hull & Deck of Dredger Boat From Mild Steel

We recently completed work on replacing the hull and deck of a dredger boat with welded metal sections for a local company, in own workshop.

As you can see from the photographs the original shell was in a poor state and very corroded.

We fabricated and welded all the new panels from mild steel and then the hull was painted.

The old deck and other sections were removed and then fabricated from mild steel durbar.

If you have a boat that needs repairing or even completely overhauling, please contact us.
