My wife and I are getting ready for a South Pacific
sail, leaving in 12 months. We're planning on heading down through Mexico
and Central America
before heading west...
We're currently in the middle of preparatory projects on the boat, and one of the things that definitely should get done is new canvass work on the dodger
. I'd been assuming that'd be a project
we'd do here in the States before leaving, but then, in a moment of brilliance, I realized that we could probably get it done as soon as we cross the boarder into Mexico
for a third the cost of what we'd pay here.
I'm curious if anyone has any recommendations for good Canvass work in Mexico (the farther north the better), or any general comments. Am I close in guessing that the cost will be close to 30% of anything I'm quoted in San Francisco
? Is there any reason not to think I could get high quality canvass in Mexico?
