Does anybody have recommendations for a qualified yacht surveyor in Indonesia? How about repair facilities for mast replacement and fiberglass deck and hull repairs? Would I be better off taking the boat to Singapore? Thanks

Personally, Ian, I think that anyplace outside Indonesia would be good. There are some good wooden shipbuilders in Indonesia, but the attitude towards foreigners is pretty one-way - the foreigners provide money, the Indonesians receive money from them, not necessarily in return for anything. It's an exhausting place to do business.
In 1986 we went cruising for a few years. After 20 years and 50+ countries and several oceans, we are STILL "cruising for a few years".

Hi Ian,

Have emailed list of Indonesian suppliers and repairers relevant to sailing yachts.

Hi David,

I'm in Banjarmasin, South Kalimantan ... lots of commercial vessels here, even some fiberglass powerboats, but nobody for sailboat repairs.

Thanks Jeanne ... I've got to properly assess what I'm up against, repairwise.

Richard, Thanks for the list.
