Re: Hourly rate for Brightwork

Essentially, that could be 2weeks, and I would rather spend what little time off I can take this time of year sailing.
CharlieCobra seems to be able to survive and enjoy life at $40/hr just fine and does a nice job at that rate (from what I have seen here).
The comments about HHN are not deserved. I consider their yard rates reasonable and quality of work quite good. But they don't do brightwork.
Thanks for the pm's, I will check out the options.
We will be raising our rates to $ 50 Hr. at the first of the year to make sure we can continue to provide our services. While I'd love to be able to charge $70-90 Hr like the big boys, I cannot see that happening for the near future.
