Re: $95.00 an hour. phew
It's taking everything I have to keep from puking out dozens of stories about the yard tards I've dealt with over the years. It's not what you pay, it's what you get and that's inferior, ineffective or often worse than before they touched the boat. Often!
On point, however, the $95 per hour is both common and understandable, given the overhead involved. I sometimes marvel at how much just the docks themselves must have cost at our marina.
What torques me is that I pay the same exact rate for the diesel mechanic that I pay for the guy that rolls on the bottom paint. That's not right, given that I've seen the unskilled, entry level guy do the bottom paint (and not very well either). They may argue, to make the operation work, they would have to raise one to lower the other. Still, that would make more sense.

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