After some years out of the yachting scene I am returning and intend to base a boat in Sydney
. Since my old cruising days the ability to work on
ones own boat seems very much more restricted, every official with a regulation book making things more difficult.
Is there a list out there of yards that allow owners to work on their own yachts, or if not a list a few names where this might still be possible. I noted more that one Sydney
yard that refuses all but their own contractors and has a minimum charge out rate on skilled work of $99 per hour.........
Any ideas would be most appreciated
