Yes, we have done (Rain Dog and I) probably 30-40 bottom jobs, I used to own a yacht service
. But I'm recovering from an illness so we have to pick our battles. We are dropping the mast
, Brian will focus on new tangs and fittings, I will hopefully be rebuilding or replacing all the thru hulls/seacocks and doing a gel coat repair. So the bottom job will be done by a contractor. I wish we could do it all, mainly cause I know it will be done right, but the bright side is we can afford to pay someone
Bsstreep, we heard about their lift
issues, even heard they dropped a couple boats! Until recently, I had only heard good things about them(hob).
