We are at Powerboats at the moment and will soon get our anti fouling
done. Unless you are going to do the work yourself, my advise is to get somebody from outside the Chaguaramas do the work. Getting prices from the contractors working within the yards (PowerBoats and Peake) are almost double than what you can get it elsewhere. Every single
quote we received across a range of boat related stuff are almost double than what we can source outside the Chaguaramas area.
Even the food
will cost you more than what the locals pay for the exact same meal. We found this out by accident
when we bought food
and one of our workers bought the very same food. We paid 40% more than him!?
On the long term, I think this "taking advantage" will be to the detriment of the entire yacht industry here in Trinidad.
In terms of weather
The humidity is very high and it rains often - mostly in the afternoon. However, there more than sufficient dry spells to paint
your anti fouling
and for it to dry. Sometimes you have a 3 to 4 day spell of absolutely no rain.
As mentioned, both Peake and PowerBoats have travel lifts - the Peake travel lift
is the largest. Powerboats also have adjustable cradle
for catamarans up to around 18 tons.
