Re: San Juan 24
$4000 for a 40 year old San Juan 24 with no motor seems like it is likely on the high side of the pricing. If the boat has been well maintained then it's a fair price, but if it is like most used sailboats and has been neglected for the last 5 years then it seems like a lot. Maybe prices are lower in Seattle than Victoria though.
In Seattle it just cost me $250 to have my mast unstepped and restepped by crane. Haul out fees also run about the same. Those prices are pretty consistent for our local yards, maybe that is cheaper up there.
The club racers who keep their boats out of the water seem to get some sort of annual deal with the marinas to have access to the crane. I've not looked into that personally.
