You glibly omitted labour costs. ;-) You think them locals love ya this much to do it all for free? That was 1800 mista, but now 2012 you must pay something. (And also pay something extra - for what our forefathers 'forgot' to pay back 1800 ;-)))

Here, a recert of a 1k value of a raft is 8 hundreds ...

Same story everywhere I think. Once something becomes obligatory the prices of related services skyrocket.

Re: cost of life raft recert

did not "gilbly" for get labor cost - they were normal at about $550 US --

and really if they want the cost for the forefathers - well maybe that is why a lot of boats are not here - the yards are so full in grenada that they would not take our friends - yards here are not even close to full and only one marina is close to full - prices for work here is just a bit high compared and quality can be suspect

just my opinion

Interesting. I thought Trinidad is further out of cyclones' tracks and so would be preferred to Grenada!

Anyways, good news for Grenada which is where my friends had a complete re-fit done quite recently. They said the boatyard was friendly and prices were OK. They liked the quality of work done for them there.

Cheers,
