Boat Repairs Made Easy Using West System Epoxy Resin!


Gibbons has been offering customers the best in fiberglass and aluminum boat repair services for over 22 years. Through the use of a boat turner called the Capsizer 8000, which is designed not only to pick up the boat but also flip it on it's side for better working conditions, Gibbons can provide faster service to get repaired boats back in the water. Doing fiberglass hull repairs, fixing stringers, transoms, water logged flotation, replacing floors and carpeting or rivets, dents, scratches, holes and gouges are the specialties Gibbons Fiberglass has become known for. Converting a closed bow boat to an open bow is also a specialty of Gibbons. 


Gibbons Fiberglass is proud to be the only aluminum boat repair facility in this area. Skeeter, Ranger, Lund, Crestliner, Sylvan, and Smokercraft are just a few of the brands of aluminum boats to be worked on at Gibbons.  Gibbons can also weld, straighten, rivet and paint aluminum boats. They offer a one-year full warranty, or the remainder of the factory warranty, whichever is greater.


In addition to exceptional service, expect the best products as well. Gibbons uses West System's Epoxy Resins and also Gel-Coat (Gel-Cote)to repair fiberglass boats. Gel-Coat (Gel-Cote) is not a urethane paint as used by other shops but a resin. Gibbons can also apply a marine paint above the waterline, resulting in a beautiful finish that never has to be polished or waxed.


Gibbons Fiberglass & Aluminum Boat Repair shop is the direct repair facility for many insurance companies and manufacturers. They work directly with the manufacturers such as Glastron, Triton, Larson, Ranger, Bayliner and Crownline to make sure that the boat is repaired to factory specifications.


The Gibbons team is happy to provide free estimates with no appointment necessary. They are also able to provide on-site estimates locally.  Gibbons Fiberglass and PWC Repair Shop can provide pick up and delivery of personal watercrafts in the Bismarck/Mandan area.
