Remember that '83 Malibu featured on the Home page? Well, the project ended up growing a life of it's own...and the upgrade continued! So finally it has been completed, for awhile at least. Here's some photos of the finished product as she is going in the water!

James Tackles the Challenge of Building Seats, Then Covering Them with New Matching Upholstery
When you have an in-house Upholstery Shop, you might run across all sorts of new jobs. For a boat shop it isn't always common to "come ashore", but that is just what happened recently when James' Boat Repair was approached to see if he could produce some new seating for a lifted gas cart. Check it out!
We can do any type of Upholstery work you need, on land or sea!
Ever feel frustrated at not being able to lay out on your closed bow boat when the sun is just perfect? Well, now you can! Introducing custom designed and constructed bow loungers. These are custom made by JBR to fit your boat and match perfectly with your colors! Our in house Upholstery shop will create a design that will look and feel like a natural part of your cruiser!
Call James' Delta Boat Repair today at (530) 723-3410 and get an estimate to add a little comfort to your boating life!
We can do work like this!
Here is an example of our work! In this case, this is a fabricated jump seat for a competition style ski boat which expands the inboard seating of the boat but blends in beautifully with the rest of the interior! Climb in and take a seat!
You know, when you think about it, many of our recreational vehicles are made largely with fiberglass. So if an accident happens, like what happened with this 40' Diesel Pusher Motorhome, James' can fix it good as new!
This vehicle had been punctured in the back and for JBR it's no problem.
The repair goes as planned and the owner is back on the road with not a trace of the mishap! Alls well the ends well.
Remember James' Boat Repair does any fiberglass repair!
James Delta Boat Repair now has added an amazing new machine to our shop - we can now do Hydrographics, an incredible new permanent method of creating and adding graphics to parts that in the past wasn't possible.
Now we can put just about any graphics you want on wheels, and many other metal parts that allow for super custom results! Check out the wheels below!
Also, we now offer a complete in house upholstery shop that means we can do custom upholstery and cut out the middle man. We can do seats, awnings, covers and more! Again, pictures will be added soon! Check our Gallery for some of the jobs we've done so far!
The bottom line is this: the best has gotten even better! If you can imagine it, chances are we can create it for you!
Welcome to 2015 and the new and improved James' Delta Boat Repair!
Call today and imagine the possibilities!
While we are certainly well known for our excellent boat repair business, we also would like to remind you that we are able to do just about any type of fiberglass and gelcoating repairs. Take this recent job on the RV below.
This vehicle was showing some wear and gelcoat flaws that had become more visible over time. The sun had also taken a toll on the vinyl graphics as well.
So, we touched up the flaws and smoothed out the entire look. Then we replaced the vinyl graphics (yes, we do that too!) and the results speak for themselves!
Now this unit is looking and feeling new again and ready to tackle summertime fun!
So remember, we can do anything fiberglass and gelcoat related - even if it's a land vessel! And, of course, we do the best boat repair around too! Call today for an estimate on your project!
The great '83 Malibu makeover!
You LOVE your boat. In fact you've always babied her. You've kept her clean, you've kept her protected from the elements. You've always done that. But Father Time waits for no one...and now she is just...well, old.
Have you looked at prices for new ski boats these days? They cost more than cars!! Ok, there might be an exotic car or luxury SUV out there that could run higher, but for the most part the prices for a nice ski boat is enough to have you praying the drought doesn't end!
What to do? Well, James' Boat Repair has an answer....Remodel yours!
Case in point - the remake of the '83 Malibu: Taking old to new with a little imagination and a lot of expert work!
The above Malibu, as you can see, was in pretty good condition. But compared to most newer boats today, it definitely looked outdated. I mean, when's the last time you saw that "rust" color on a new boat?
Ready for the challenge, JBR set out to "re-create" this timeless beauty into something the owner would be proud to launch next to the guys with the $70k+ boats, and the loans that go with them!
For starters, this boat had limited seating. Why not add an open bow and create additional seating there? Is that possible? You bet - check the pics below:
James' Boat Repair and the owner have gone with a new clean, white look for this remodel. A new sleek blackened windshield will contrast nicely, and go well with the great black and gray graphics to come! The work continues:
Some finishing touches to complete the look are in progress now. New carpet is installed throughout the interior. New "Malibu" plaque nameplate is hung on the back, new graphics on the exterior on both sides, and of course the new tower is reworked too.
New powder-coating for beauty and durability is applied. To add to this look, new lighting is required throughout. So, new LED lights are added for both in and out of the water! That includes the main boat body, but also the tower and even around the new speakers installed there. Underwater lights complete the new illumination of this modern creation!
It's really coming together now. With the graphics in place, this beautiful Malibu is ready to hang with anything on the water!
Incredible remodel, right? Why not give James' Boat Repair a call and see what can be done with your old love? Maybe it's time to bring her back...to the future!
