LOL... 100' anchor rode? Are they serious? That isn't enough to anchor the boat in most conditions safely.

For the work done... it is probably worth it, if the work was done properly. The fact that they used LEXAN in the ports makes me wonder if the work was done properly, since LEXAN really isn't the right material for ports.

I'd also be curious as to what prompted the need to do such a major overhaul. New bulkheads and mast compression post tends to indicate that the boat needed to have these replaced. If so, they were probably seriously rotted, and how did that come to be?

I'd highly recommend you read the Boat Inspection Trip Tips thread I started, and use that as a guide to go over the boat with...

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
