ha ha ha. when you use boatyard in cali you will be billed105 usd per hour for MECHANIC
when you use independent mechanic, you WILL receive charge of 105 usd per hour.
so YOU tell me again that marine
mechanics do not get 105 usd per hour.
granted the work is seasonal, so take home aint 200,000 plus per annum.
so... as you naysayers do not haul boats out of water
or hire mechanics for work, you do not know the reality of hiring mechanics to do your work.
unless you have done this, you truly do not know.
and then there are the overrated gringos in pair a dice whohave very bad reputations, remove parts
from your engine
and harge double bakatcha for your own part to be reinstalled...repeatedly, same clown who charges flat 10,000 usd merely to LOOK at an engine
bay and then 50,000 usd for a 15000 usd new engine.
luckily, i was able to find realistically priced, accountable local mechanic guru without the evil quirks the english
speaking self appointed alleged mechanics develop before their arrivals here to fleece cruisers.
life is an adventure meant to be LIVED!!!
