    Default Carpenter / Chippy recommendations in Preston Area.

    I have decided that replacing all the woodwork on my MP31 is going to be a better / nicer option than just replacing the deck and any other pieces that are showing rot / damp.
    This is a little beyond me and will also require some fibreglassing too.
    Does anyone have any recommendations for a decent chippy in the Preston area that would take this on.
    Doesn't need to be dove-tail joints everywhere but i am looking for someone that can make a nice job and not just throw a big hammer at a lot of 6" nails at a lot of 3" x 2" !!
    Thanks in advance

    It maybe worth dropping Waynes World of this parish a pm, he works on other peoples boats and is very handy with carpentry and fibreglass. He's worked on other forum members boats with good results from what I have read. He's in Manchester iirc.

    Hi Mark, hope all is well down there and in return for that i have to say you are the best customer yet to date as to get a cruise in an amazing boat to the VIP lounge for dinner




    My latest chippy job for one of my boat.


    Iroko tiles on 18mm base with Sapele hockey stick trim, all to match the cupboard top in Khashoggi. The filler i made worked great, used Cascamite and added Iroko dust from the last job. Near done now on Khashoggi. Oh finished in Le Tonkinous.

    Sorry for not contacting you as you were, after all, recommended.
    I just believed that being in Manchester you would be too far to take on this project, nothing personal and sorry if i appeared rude or ignorant.

    I recommended him because I thought it was close enough to Preston, 40 miles? Not far for a tradesman really.

    @Wayne....can you still get cascamite? you are old school lol.
