Marina or facilities available in Panama to fix the bottom of a 72ft sailboat?

Hi,

Am new to the cruising community and would appreciate any advice.
Researching on places where I can get the bottom fibreglass hull fixed, any one has any suggestions? The boat is a 1950s model and about 76ft or less.

Thank you!

Shelter Bay in Cristobol (Colon) on the Caribbean side or Flemenco in Balboa on the Pacific side.

awesome, thank you! I reckon it can accommodate bigger boats as well? I heard it cost about $2500 in Columbia, any idea what the estimate would be here?

I'm pretty sure it would be cheaper in Colombia than in Panama--at least that is my experience. The Travelift at Shelter Bay is rated at up to 100 tons, 28-foot beam.
