There's a hard stand DIY yard at Taren Point that is always 'sposed to be closing down but never seems to. It wasn't that cheap
when I last asked.
I found the most cost effective way to rebuild
a boat in Sydney was to do it in the water. The below the waterline stuff can be redone every year or so when you haul. I used a Honda
Noakes was the best for hauling. I'd advise nailing every detail of your agreement down especially price
, when you come out, when you go in and what work they are going to do. The best prices were over an extended weekend and they were doing times to the nearest hour when I came out. If there's a delay then make sure they know it's not on your account.
The big problem with keeping a boat in the water in Sydney is dinghy
access. I found that paying for a commercial mooring
with good access was worth the extra compared with cheaper maritime Authority moorings.
As with all marine
work these days it may be a good idea to get a few small jobs done before committing to any service
provider, and even then I'd still be careful.
There are a few places in Sydney that I'd never go back to so do ask around before making a major commitment.
If you can run a good line of BS Blackwattle Bay seems to be full of boats these days.
