 Replacement of teak on a bathing platform

As you can see by the photos, the teak was clearly past repair with sections starting to peel off, therefore there was no other option but to remove the teak and the epoxy bonding and replace with new.





 This cabin was Bespokely designed and built by G.G.F to look authentic and original and yet be practical and cost effective. 


    life boat cabin

 This old life boat had to be totally gutted and have  new floor and engine bearers installed. These were all custom made by our team at G.G.F and were made of solid oak. Next they were fibre glassed and gel coated over for durability and prevent them from rotting .


 Here is a set of solid hardwood lockable doors with toughened glass windows set into the door . These were made for a falkland fisher offshore 600 which went to the Isle of Skye. Distance is no object as G.G.F are site work specialists. We also have a custom built workshop with lifting facilities for projects to be undertaken in the correct environment.
