Personal handover of the boat and presentation of the damage to be repaired is required in all cases. If for some reason you are unable to hand over the boat in person, please contact us before booking an appointment to discuss other options (in this case, please send photos of the damage).

Who am I?

My name is Gabor Denes. I was born in Hungary.

From 1981 to 2000, I worked at the Faculty of Chemical Engineering of the Budapest University of Technology.
The first major milestone in my passion for boats was my first wooden boat, completed in 1990.
After that, more and more friends of mine approached me about small and large repairs, and I was asked to build more and more kayaks and canoes.

My first serious professional experience was at the Budapest Boat Show in 1997 and then again in 2000.
After that I worked full-time as a shipbuilder.

I was an officially commissioned shipbuilder:
European Kayak-Canoe Championship in 2002
World Cup in 2003
World Championship in 2011

In 2002, I won 2nd place at the "Carpenter of the year" competition with the wooden paddles I made.

I have been a boat builder and repairer for several associations for many years. (Since 2013, I have regularly contributed to several associations in Singapore. I worked in a factory in Fiji where they built V1 and V6 outriggers.)

My works are known mainly in Europe and Southeast Asia.

In 2017, I completed Nelo's boat repair course.

how do I work?

A significant part of my work is Nelo, Epic, Fenn, etc. ocean, flat water, wild water boat repairs plus boat construction.
It often happens that the work cannot be carried out under the conditions set by the factory or workshop manual, because, for example, the boat cannot be transported. In such cases, I work with the most basic tools and freehand on the river bank or on the beach.

I keep a record of the completed tasks, photo documentation is made of the work process (before and after pictures), which I also send to the customer.

Important: Please be aware that the finished colour may not be a perfect match with the original colour due to a varied factors and/or there might be an slight bump due the extra composite layer used.
Personal handover of the boat and presentation of the damage to be repaired is required in all cases. If for some reason you are unable to hand over the boat in person, please contact us before booking an appointment to discuss other options (in this case, please send photos of the damage).
