Maintenance and Repairs in Eastern Med

Hi People,

I would be interested in any recommendations for good places to get some work done. (I have tried our marina, two different workshops, without success)

We are based at DMarin, Didim, Turkey and I would love to find somewhere , at reasonable distance, that could do the work.

Problems:
1/ New U.V. strip for foresail
2/ New guard wires.
3/ An old Danfoss fridge compressor that refuses to work. (one of the workshops thought it was the control unit which they removed and have now lost!)
4/ Liferaft bottle which needs re-filled and trigger re-fitted.

I have heard that the yards at Lakki (Leros) are good but I would love some personal recommendations.

Any thoughts!

Why not Yat Marin or Netsel in Marmaris? They have a lot of workshops both on the premises and in town. Our friends repaired a sail there and got quite a lot of stainless work done. They're still happy with the jobs three years later.

Another option: have you looked at Aganlar boatyard in Bodrum? There are workshops around there as well, but I don't know anyone who stayed there.

A bit of a drift to this thread: how do you like D-Marin in Didim? Does the weather allow to sail during winter? We're trying to decide between this marina and Yat Marin for the next winter...

Re: Maintenance and Repairs in Eastern Med

Hi Katiusha,
thanks for the thoughts.

D-Marin is very good (apart from some of the workshops!) The layout is not crowded with boat spacing at a sensible distance and the pontoons are sturdy with laid bow lines.
Some extreme winds do affect the moorings but the staff are very vigilant and will replace stern lines that they feel are vulnerable. Last winter they doubled up on all the bow lines.
The entrance is well positioned and, so far, I have not see conditions that would stop safe entry and exit; all year round.
The only down-side being the prices which seem to up in leaps and bounds. (mooring fees are an occupational hazard when you have a boat!)

Hope this helps.

Re: Maintenance and Repairs in Eastern Med

Second to Katiusha re: Yat Marine in Marmaris. For UV strip there are four sail lofts to help-North Sails, UK Sails, Elvstrom, and Doyle.
Check out DS Marine for the refrig issue
PAM for liferaft service
MS Rigging, or UK Rigging or Moss Rigging for guard wire (lifelines?)

in fact, check out www.cruisingtips.net/MBC for info. This is a full info cruisers blog for the Marmaris Bay.

We are here at Yat Marine for next three weeks and can send more specific info if requested.
