Experience You Can Rely On

Since we have been dealing with Grand Banks so long, we know which things are going to fail at some point. Also, we can determine which items are likely to fail on survey when your Grand Banks is for sale. Below are the typical Grand Banks repairs we see and a little information on the causes.

Grand Banks Lazarette Hatches

The lazarette hatches on Grand Banks are subject to water penetration. We see it all the time. We have developed ways to draw the moisture out and reseal but we often recommend building new hatches. These hatches are complicated construction with plywood inner core, fiberglass shell, teak decking, caulking, screws and hardware; lots of places to keep watertight.

Grand Banks Swim Platforms

We see damaged swim platforms on Grand Banks a lot. We can repair minor damage but recommend replacement for major damage. Our replacements are much better made and sturdier than OEM.

Grand Banks Mast Painting

All painted aluminum will eventually corrode. Masts and booms are especially prone since they have holes bored for electronics and brackets that allow water to penetrate. We paint lots of masts every year.

Grand Banks Deck Repairs and Removal

Teak decks are nice when they look good and function like they are intended but like all other parts of your boat they require maintenance and once they have gone too far will need to be serviced. See Teak Deck Repairs or Removal in our Service Log.
