Recommend a fiberglass shop in the SE?

This is for a camper boat so it probably needs to be a place that can do a gel-coat. Some images are here -

Every shop I have called seemed either backed up for months or super sketchy.

I need a place that can do the exterior work. Repair the back, sand and repaint the top or gel-coat it, replace the windows and install an anchor pulpit.

I'm in Tallahassee FL but willing to drive it someplace that will do a nice job.

The interior I'll probably mostly do myself but the exterior I've got to find someone who knows fiberglass repair to have it done.

May be too far for you but I have used a fiberglass magician near Roanoke, VA for several repairs, both minor and major, over the years. My work has all been on fiberglass travel trailers, but he works mostly on boats.

High Rock Marine

I hit a big rock w my Scamp and trashed the skirt on one side. High Rock Marine did a lovely job and also buffed the gel coat back to shiny. They are on High Rock Lake near Lexington NC. Being in Florida, there should be a wealth of boat repair shops. Surely someone, maybe Angie's List, can recommend a good one.

I can recommend someone great in Santa Cruz, California, but he too is backed up months.

I had identified a highly recommended fiberglass detailer, was going to have him do a polish and poly-sealant on my Escape... then I scraped and holed it, ooops, so had to cancel the detail job. did my research, came up with this FG repair shop, and when I mentioned that to the detailer, he was "Oh, he's the best!", and when I mentioned the detailer to the FG repair guy, "Oh, he's the best!!" heh. yeah yeah, S'Cruz is a small town

While I would prefer a boat facility, some auto body shops do fine fiberglass work. Think Corvettes.
