Do not, under any circumstances use La Force S/Y in Bayou La Batre, Al. You may be tempted as there are no bridges between the Gulf and the yard and plenty of water in between; the owner will also talk a good game.

I can promise you that whatever they deliver will be second rate and cost at least twice as much as you are quoted. I spent three of the longest months overseeing the construction of a vessel and I've never seen such a crooked, dirty, slipshod, incompetent operation in my 20 seagoing years. Stay away from theose scumbags!!!

Best of luck!
