I think she means getting a good job done on the boat - not seeking employment.

Re: your help needed

Welcome, Greaser-Girl. I'm afraid your question is not really clear, so it's hard for the very helpful (have been to me) folks on the forum to know how to help you. Could you try again, being very specific as to your needs?

Installing the sea cocks (2). Frolicking aka paint jobs. the boat out of water....I'm no US citizen..UK.......my stupid qestion where can it be done for a good price (no High End marina)

Re: Your Help Needed

The Deltaville Boatyard, in Deltaville, Virginia, has a good reputation. I stored my boat on the hard there one winter, and they did some work for me, including installing a seacock. They were competent, reasonably priced and good to deal with. I don't know if they're set up to deal with steel boats (cutting & welding).

Re: Your Help Needed

As a general strategy, look for yards that serve commercial fishing boats rather than recreational yachts. Those guys are much more likely to respect your budget, and are more likely to be equipped to do the major work you require. As for the watermaker, what genset do you presently have? What's your battery bank? You have several options - run it off the engine, run it off the electricity, and run it off the rechargeable batteries. If you were on the Gulf coast I'd have the perfect choice for you - DS Marine in Carrabelle. They are currently sandblasting and painting my steel boat, and a morning's worth of certified seacock welding cost me $200.
