Dear visitor,

below we would like to give you a brief insight on additional work on our part, during a 5 - year LSA Services give.

In this case, it is the overhaul of a freefall boat. Not only the technical side, like the engine, the electrical and safety equipment will be checked by our technicians and, if necessary, repaired / replaced but also the " Exterior " is important to us. Therefore we also offer the repainting of the boats, in this case, a freefall boat, on. [Nbsp]
