Gelcoat repair in Nor Cal

Iím looking to get some estimates to determine what it will cost to re-gel coat my 1985 S&S and make it just like new. I'm wondering if anyone in the Northern California area can recommend a good gel coat shop. Iíll strip out all the hardware and reinstall it when the gel work is done.

I'll be watching this thread. I haven't had any work done, but I've been considering having some scratches and chips in the hull repaired. Don't know where you are in Nor Cal, but I'd probably start by looking around Alameda/Oakland/Sausalito area where there are a large number of marinas.
I do know that Autobody and More in Santa Rosa does very good work, but I think they might be on the high side. I was looking in to having my tandem axle trailer painted, they quoted me $5K!!

Depends where you are in NorCal. In Sacramento Valley I would look up Hurleman's in Penryn.

I'm in Fairfield (East San Fransisco Bay Area), but I'm willing to tow it a few hours to a good shop for a quote.
I'll call Hurleman's, Thanks

Try Liquid Wrenches in Livermore. Tell them you want the winter special a little early!

I used to ski there on a weekly basis. I have not been on Clementine in the last 10 years. I live less than 20mins away. I have been skiing on a private lake in Pleasant Grove for the last 14+ years, and on a lake in Meadow Vista. It is a public lake with private access.

There is a guy in Redding who does really good work. He did a spot on my 94. I can't remember his name, but he did all the warranty work for Meyer's Marine. He was very good. It's worth contacting Meyer's.
