hornbeck boats repair 2

That first scratch is always the worst!

Quick tip: If you find yourself with a leak, a simple piece of Duct Tape will often work as a temporary repair.

Although Hornback boats are built to be sturdy, sometimes something happens and repairs are needed. Our boats have been designed with future repairs in mind. We can take apart an entire boat and put all new parts on it to breathe life into one that has been injured, neglected, or lovingly enjoyed for many, many years. What we have seen is that most damage happens off the water, a boat comes off the car in transit, the straps are over-tightened, etc. On the water, your boat can take a lot of abuse. Most of this ' is cosmetic wear and tear but shouldn't affect the boat's performance. From wrapping around a river rock to forgetting to take the boat off the roof when you go into the garage, our boats can bounce back to give you many more years of enjoyment. 

The repair Process

  • Give us a call (518) 251-2764 to set up an appointment.

  • Your boat will then be assessed by a member of our team and you will be given and estimate on the work needed as well as an estimated completion date. 

  • You can rest assured that all repairs are completed to Hornbeck Boats quality standards for workmanship and longevity.

  • When the repair work is complete, you will be notified that your boat is ready for pickup. (if a voicemail is left a follow up call will be made 7 days later), you will have 30 days in which to pick up your boat, after which time we will begin charging storage fees of $50 per month.

Before bringing your boat in for repairs,
please ensure that the boat:

  • Has been washed and is clean inside and out

  • Is free of any temporary patches covering damages areas

  • Is free of any ropes, straps, removable mounts etc.

*Boats that do not meet the above criteria will be charged accordingly. Please be sure all of the above are covered before bringing your boat to us.

Simple Hull Patches

We can place a reinforcement patch on the inside to avoid any further spread if requested.Usually, we can do these while you wait; often for free. Call in advance, as an appointment is necessary.
