Avon Dinghy Repair and Clean
This was a repair and deep clean job on an old Avon dinghy. It was looking very sorry for itself when it was brought to us but it 'brushed up' very well. We refitted the rub strip, repaired the transom edge and fully cleaned the dinghy. The customer was very happy and so were we at the result. It just shows that it's never too late for an overhaul.
