To whom it may concern,
During a recent shipyard period in Ft.Lauderdale, Florida we contracted Francisco from Sea Shield who came highly recommended by colleagues in the industry who had worked with him in San Diego, California to restore, polish and preserve our 2 year old blue and white Gelcoat as well as all the windows after two very hard seasons in the Med.
Francisco polished the entire hull and superstructure as well as all windows and port lights and we are very happy with the results. The exhaust and salt stains on the hull came off very easily with the Sea Shield products and the Gelcoat looks brand new again. The salt stains on the hull windows that we thought would take a lot of work to restore came up very nicely and without much hassle.
We have since purchased other Sea Shield products and Francisco was very helpful in training the deck crew in there use so that we can continue to preserve the Gelcoat and windows and keep them both looking great through the coming year.
Francisco was professional and efficient at all times and always made sure that we were 100% happy with his work.
I highly recommend Francisco and Sea Shield to any other yacht looking to restore their Gelcoat or paint and will definitely being hiring them next year to polish the boat again.

M.Y.***** is a 76 meter (248’6”) motor yacht built by FEADship and delivered in January 09.
We have used SEA-SHIELD, represented by Francisco Linares on two occasions and been very satisfied with both their work and their products for Paint, Stainless and Glass.
Francisco gave the crew excellent tuition and guidance in the use of all his products while he was onboard, we have already bought a small amount from him with every intention of buying more when the Yacht does its next stock up.
I would have no hesitation in recommending both his product and services, which I am sure I will be using again sometime in the future.

Sea-Shield to polish and protect the exterior glass on our yacht. The crew did a professional job taking care of the yacht and worked extremely hard to complete the project in the very limited time available. They successfully completed the work on time and to budget. We are very happy with the protection given to the glass and also use various other nano products from them to keep our yacht looking new and shining bright. We recommend them wherever we go.

Francisco from Sea Shield has provided an excellent service for M/Y Strangelove 140 Feadship while wintering in San Diego. Some examples…. We had a large scratch on one of the windows. Sea Shield was able to polish it out and bring the glass back to its original condition. The Nano products have proven to be very good. I have tried many systems and found that it works the best for maintaining the paint work. Sea-Shield has also replaced some caulking; the quality of work was very good. I found Francisco very professional and presentable, and would recommend Sea-Shield to other yachts.
Thanks for the great service that your company provided to the 122 Delta Tri-deck Motor Yacht, SOC. Your firm did a great job; professional, on time and under budget. The yacht looks better than ever, the stainless looks great, the 5 year old paint job got the shine back and the windows look terrific. Keep up the good work and I will strongly recommend your products and maintenance services. Thank you!

We had our glass restored and protected by Sea-Shield. Francisco removed hard water stains that had been in our glass windows for years. He used a special system to buff the glass windows to a super-shine look. It’s like having new glass.
Francisco, thank you for an outstanding job.
