hull mods in the Dominican Republic?

We're interested in finding a yard that will fabricate two "sugar scoop" hull extensions on our sailing catamaran. Because of it's proximity to us, we'd be interested in any possibilities along those lines in the Dominican Republic. I've been doing online searches, but so far there doesn't seem to be much info on D.R. boatyards, other than the golf/condo/marina type places. Does anyone here know of any yards in the DR that are good with custom fiberglass fabrication?

I think you would be better off in Miami or Fajardo, PR. There used to be one cat builder in the DR, near Luperon, but I think they've closed.

I think you may be right. I'm not finding anything on the internet, anyhow, in the DR. Miami is workable, although not ideal. Anyone have any recommendations on a yard in SE Florida that could do this kind of work?
