We had been postponing getting a full enclosure because of the cost but on arrival in Cartagena
we decided to get a new stackpack which had been quoted at $2,500 in both Florida
When the canvas man, Renson at Club Nautico, quoted us $800 for a stackpack made with Sunbrella we got a quote on all new canvas...The final job was:
Recut, resew and repair a 1100sq ft genoas and a 400 sq ft staysail
New dodger, using our glass which was only 2 yrs old
Chaps for the 11 ft dinghy
Cover for 12 diesel
All done expertly and very well in Sunbrella. He had a cheaper material than Sunbrella but said he did not like working with it as it did not meet his standards.
Total cost? I got change out of $5000 for all labour and materials!
