Just for reference on this thread (...and to help me procrastinate boat work a few minutes more...), below are my plans and recent SB quoted numbers.
1) Haul at SB and get bottom painted (because its w-a-y over due) plus a few other minor maintenance
items. Should be a quick turn around and I will do all work except the bottom job. Numbers from SB quote for 35' cat:
Haul/Splash $560 ($16/ft)
$131.50 ($0.75/ft/day x 5 days)
Stay Aboard $75 (15/day)
Apply Paint $216 ($72/gal for 3 gallons, may use only 2)
Total $1,235 + 7% tax
They wanted $320/gal for Sea Hawk paint so I'm shipping
my own in (Interlux) at about $100/gallon less.
Storage/stay aboard charges are annoying, but otherwise not wildly expensive.
There are a number of boats getting bottom jobs here now, and lots of boats in dry storage (despite the high rate), but I don't see much other work going on in the yard.
to Cartagena for more labor/time intensive work (glass, interior
wood work, unstep mast
, maybe stern extensions...). Partially because we have not been to Cartagena, and want to do some inland travel, and due to less cost.
Anything not finished up in Cartagena will wait till we get back to the Rio.
