Again, PYI will recommend a qualified installer/diver in your area. The benefits of having a diver do the job are that the boat owner does not even need to be present for the work to be done and if the pitch needs to be tweaked, the diver can jump right back in and do it. Try getting an unscheduled, last minute haulout at your yard.
