Thanks guys that price is, as I was told, for everything them pulling the mast and doing all the work the fellow told me if I did the work with them it would be a good bit cheaper, so if I did all the main work helping remove the mast and such that would help. I will talk to them again about it and I do plan on sailing to the Bahamas eventually so I plan on installing radar and going ahead and doing the mast head lights and anchor light as well as other things may even paint the mast. I figured it was not a bad price, next time I can meet with them they said that they would point everything out to me so I will do that so that I can see and talk to them in person more. Thanks for the information, and if you guys could help me come up with a list of questions to ask them and things to think about that would be great.
If they will allow you to work with them to defray part of the cost, I'd jump all over that. Not only will it lessen the cost, but it could be highly educational.
