Holiday Schedule

Holiday-seasonIt’s that time of year again! As families gather, and food is cooked, we wanted to take a minute to go over our delivery schedule for the end of the year.

Christmas falls on a Monday, this year. All locations will be closed on Monday, the 25th and will reopen on Tuesday, December 26th. We will also be closed on Monday, January 1st, for New Years day. All locations will be back in the swing of things in 2018.

If you are in the state of Florida, then there is a really good chance we can deliver product to you. For the last two weeks of the year, the normal schedule has changed slightly.

If you get deliveries from our St. Petersburg corporate office on Mondays, then your delivery date will be pushed back to the previous Friday. So, the 22nd, and the 29th, respectively.

If you get deliveries from our Ft. Lauderdale location, then your delivery day has been pushed to Tuesday.

Wherever you are, we look forward to getting your product to you as soon as possible.

Not sure when we deliver to you? Give us a call at 1-800-272-7890 and we will be happy to let you know! Or, e-mail us at info@fgci.com and we will be happy to respond to you right away.

From everyone at Fiberglass Coatings, we wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a Safe, prosperous New Year!

    I am removing my rotting boat floor and it seems that my stringers are good. I plan to glass my stringers and then attach a new marine plywood floor to the stringers and my plan is to go with two layers of biaxial with some vinyl ester resin to finish the floor. And then finally tie it into the sides with chopped strand and vinyl water resin. And then gel coat. (1) how do I determine which biaxial to choose? (2) my flooring area is 10 foot by 6 foot. How much resin should I get? (3) And do I need to paint or can I just gel coat and get a non tacky surface?

      Good day and thank you for your question! Firstly, the biaxal you choose will depend on how far apart your strings are and how rigid you need it to be. Generally, you will see most go with a 1708, which is 17oz of Woven Roving and 3/4 oz mat. As far as estimating the coverage of your resin, it will depend on the type of cloth you put down. Generally, you should get about 35-40 square feet per gallon of resin.
      Finally, with the gelcoat, if gelcoat is already down, you can apply gelcoat with some basic surface preperation. By adding Sanding Aid (often called wax) to the final coat, it will achieve a tack-free surface.

      If you have any other questions, please don’t hesitate to e-mail me at khopp@fgci.com, or give us a call at 1-800-272-7890, or even respond to this comment.
      Have a great day!
