My boat is on the hard in peakes in trinidad and we also had her out in angra dos reis in brazil. We spent 2 years in brazil and I found the rates for per day for anything boat related much higher in brazil than almost anywhere. Also as there are massive import fees
so any parts
or materials like paint
are very expensive in brazil.
We also found the quality of work and availability of high quality trades mich easier to source in peakes and in trinidade in general as compared to brazil.
If you had to get work done there are many quLified places in south brazil but given the choice the caribbean
with its proximity to cheap parts
in the us would be my choice.
Just my experience others may have had different ones.
