Hello all, I have called over 20 marinas
in the Sandy Hook area of northern New Jersey
and I am only getting one person's name to help me unstep a mast
on a Wanderer 30.
After reading on here about other people's experiences with getting their mast's unstepped/ restepped and their costs I was a little shocked when I was quoted $2000 to get it done.
I have been told by some marinas
that due to Sandy's destruction people are increasing prices to help get their businesses back faster. I have also been told that since the boat is at a municipal marina I need to have someone that is licensed and/or part of a union. I have been told a lot of things but it's getting to the point of buying
some friends a few beers and lower it ourselves (drinking after the lowering to help with the hernias)
Please if someone knows the north Jersey shore area and possibly has had their mast
unstepped let me know who you used and about what you paid. I am ok with paying a few hundred dollars, just not $2K
