What color gel-coat should I use to repair my boat?

Repairing gel-coat is both an art and a science. The precise gel-color depends on a number of factors including the:

1. Time of day it was applied
2. Temperature at which it was applied
3. Batch of gel-coat used (each batch differs slightly)
4. The age (as boats age, gel-coat fades)

For the best match we recommend you work with a marine professional to make any gel-coat repairs on your BRIG. If you want to match the color yourself, you can find companies online that will match samples. 

We do not sell gel-coat or recommend any particular gel-coat vendor.

What year is my boat & where is the HIN plate located?

The HIN (Hull Identification Number) plate will always be found on the starboard side of the boat on the transom.

47847 = Hull production number

This boat is a 2019

 

How do I determine the air pressure of the tubes?

One way to check the pressure of your tubes is by attaching a pressure gauge. Some air pumps come equipped with a built-in pressure gauge, but if yours doesn't, you can just as easily check the air pressure with a portable pressure gauge.

Another option is to replace your boat's valves with TRIB airCap solar-powered, high-accuracy pressure gauges. These attach directly to the inflation valve and show the current tube pressure so you immediately know if the tubes need more air. There are two airCap models, one compatible with Leafield C7/D7 valves and the other compatible with Halkey-Roberts valves. You can see how easy these valves are to install in this video, and for more information you can visit the TRIB website
