Re: Post Survey Cost Estimates

Congrats on the new boat.

As you mention you're new to this, I should add that there can be many ways to affect a boat repair. For example, some will try to repair a delam by cutting or drilling small holes and trying to inject with epoxy. The proper way is to cut the section out and re-lay the core, glass and gelcoat. The difference in cost is about 100 fold.

While I understand the marinas point about the time it takes them to do an estimate, I would never pay for one unless they disclosed it first. If they want the work they estimated, you should ask them to remove that. Indeed, they may have been protecting themselves that you would just go elsewhere to get it done and would be happy to remove it.

In the harsh marine environment, something is always in need of repair. Margaritas fix everything.
