We just brought our boat back from KKMI. They did a great job, although it was expensive. Right now they have a free haul out when they do your bottom paint. We got out of there under $1400, that included new zincs and some basic blister repair. Also, everyone there is happy, so they treat their workers well. Even the guys grinding the blisters would stop and talk to me, taking the time to explain stuff and checking to make sure there was no dust in the cabin. I would stay away from Nelson. I have heard bad things, and every time I have wandered in there, I get a bad feeling. Svendsens gets good reviews and they have everything you could ever want right there. Its an amazing compound.
khbritton - did I see you out on the Bay yesterday (monday) by Angel Island?
