He posts on here as Dave Cowal, I've bought materials off him and seen a couple of jobs in progress in his workshop that looked ok.His pricing is keen and he seems a decent enough guy to do business with. I'd be happy to give him work although no direct experience of having work done by him

Did you get it fixed and by whom in end? I seen her lying behind my boat and was still big gash in it on my a week ago so if it is fixed kudos to them.

As for the place in question, I'm sure that guy posts on here as Dave cowal, never used them though but might be worth a pm.

Thank you everyone for the positive comments.

Just to avoid any misunderstanding the crappy repair was not done by us, we put someone elses poor repair right.
