I'm planning a long overdue refit
on Kelly Peterson
44, currently parked at a private residence dock
in Ft. Lauderdale. Very extensive refit
is needed including repower
, new fuel
and water tanks
, lots of interior
work including electrical
, etc. etc.
thinking is to move it temporarily to a Ft. Lauderdale yard to take the mast
down (necessary to replace the water
tanks) and staging for transport by truck. Then truck it up to Indiantown for the refit.
One concern I have is that I want to hire some hands to help with manual labor, hopefully inexpensive. But Indiantown is telling me these workers have to be insured, and I have no idea how to accomplish that. Another concern is that Indiantown is so remote
, I would prefer doing the refit closer to Ft. Lauderdale, but the boatyard has to be affordable (if there is such a thing!).
Looking for suggestions and advice, thanks.
