Re: About the time it takes to fix engines

Yard tards. We get it.

I've never in my entire 38 years on the water, ever found a yard that didn't manage to cause some sort of serious aggravation. Unreliable is the softest of them, try a few inches of diesel in your bilge or a gouge out of your brand new topside paint. You do have to stay on them.

A dirty little secret is there are probably boats in your marina that have paid Captains or boat managers. Those individuals are often responsible for several boats in the same marina and are there nearly full time. I've even seen them live aboard larger client's boats. They develop a relationship with the yard in addition to being under their nose every day, so their work often gets done first.

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