Well, cheap and bay area boat yard don't really go together. It would be nice to know how much of a difference in price for same services from various yards. Some yards just mess things up, what is the cost for that. I know of some bad things that have happened at Nelsons. I have had work done at Svendsens and have been very impressed, but again not cheap. How much more? I don't know. How well does the yard do of prepping and putting on bottom paint? Do they get the bottom of the keel properly? What cost for quality?
