Default Bahamas

Just received a quote from a yard in Abaco in the Bahamas. I preface the ditty with the news that owners can perform maintenance on their boats, but only the yard can do bottom jobs. So haul out and blocking $1200. Yikes enough!

But here is the beaut. Sand hull, prime, paint with 3 coats of antifoul $4800. Cost of antifouling paint $495 per gallon, cost of primer $495 per gallon. No surprise then, that the boat will be sailed back to Fort Lauderdale where I can do the job myself and where the paint will cost about $180 per gallon.

Dat's far too much mon
