Okay gals and guys, I need a lot of help. I just bought my boat, no survey
done. I know what a no, no that is. I knew before I bought it, but I just had this gut instinct. I always follow it. Right on 95% of the time. And right on this time too. Had the survey
done AFTER I paid for it. It was totally what I expected, so that's all good.
Having it shrink wrapped for winter. It's in Branford, Ct. My next step will take place in the spring when I put her in the water
. I want to take her to the Merritt Island area. I am a 71yr old women. So I can't do the work myself. I need the name of a reliable, honest, marina with a boatyard that can do all the work I need on the hull
line. It's like car mechanics...women always get screwed unless it's a referral from someone they can trust. I also need the prices to be normal, not out in left field somewhere. I was looking at Cape Marina...anyone have pros and cons on this place?
Also there is crazing on the hull
portside, about 1/4 of the area of the portside. What does this entail? Does it need to be just sanded and the painted. The vessel is painted black and I want to paint
it cream or white. Other than the crazing, the hull is in good shape. What would an approx cost for doing a good job on the entire hull be?
I can deal with little by little, the next thing I would tackle is the electrical
..please tell me if that is correct. Would I do the electrical
or the plumbing
first. When I do either, do I need a boat electrician and a boat plumber or if I had a friend that was a really good electrician but not boat savvy, would he be able to do a good job with his knowledge?
I am sooo impressed with all of you, I don't know what we newbie's would do without you. Thanks for all your input
