Can anyone recommend a good gelcoat/fiberglass repair place in either Wichita, KS or Shell Knob, Mo?

There is a guy named Barry in Colwich (can't remember his business' name) that does excellent work. He usually does gel work in the winter and the bigger jobs like engine work in the peak season. PM if want his info.

Yep, Barry's Westside Marine. Great guy for any boat work. He used to do my Crownline before I moved on to the X2 that is now at Tablerock, I can only hope I can find someone as good as Barry in Shell Knob now that the boat is there permanently.

Hey guys, taking my 89 Ski Nautique to Barry's next week (I know, wrong brand :) but Nautique owners in this part of the country are hard to find!). I've got a cooling issue and some carb work that I need done. Does anybody have any experience with Barry's as far as inboard motor work goes? Sounds like he knows his stuff...

Call the local dealers. Marine World in Wichita. They have repairs done in house all the time.

Yeah, I've used Marine World before- good people. I called them today...They are booked about 3 1/2 weeks out though. I did ask them about Barry's and they said he was very good.

I have used Champion Marine Repair in Spokane, MO, for several "oops" to my x-15. They perfectly matched the color. Took about 2 weeks. http://championshipmarine.com/
