I think the problem is the indoor facility. I know my yard wouldn't allow it. They're monopolistic thieves.

I have an estimate request in for two and a half weeks now. Standard stuff, but if you don't get an estimate, they can put any level of skill on the job and bill you whatever it takes for them to learn how to do it. Want the kicker? My monthly invoice had already arrived and they billed me to go take a look at the work to do the estimate! Still haven't received the estimate! You can't make this stuff up. All the while, ain't no way I can bring you in to work in their building.

Is there a DIY yard anywhere close with buildings? More than one way to skin a cat..

If I had some jobs lined up, we'd apply for a visa and show up on your dock.

Re: Baggett and Sons East Coast Road Trip

50 minutes away is Herrington Harbour, great yard with great folks running it. Unfortunately I just took on a new gig on so my time is limited at best...

PM me for my phone and lets see what we can work out.

Unfortunately, I doubt it.

At our yard, DIY is permitted on the hard or at your slip, but not inside. I think that is common. If you bring a contractor on the hard or at the slip, they must demonstrate they have insurance, be approved by the manager and someone pays a 15% vig to the yard. I have no doubt that some of the yard's employees, who didn't get the work, would be jerks about it too. The manager in particular. For inside storage, they don't even permit DIY, let alone a contractor.

When they stink at what they do, a monopoly is about their only weapon.

I believe that inside storage has waiting lists around here. And VERY expensive. $12 - $15 per sqft, plus the mast. Since you can't do any work yourself, you increase the winter storage bill even further to pay them. I know one yard that won't even haul your boat, unless you pay them to winterize it.

Re: Baggett and Sons East Coast Road Trip

Can you put a tent up over your boat while it's outside Minne? You could build a greenhouse around it with heavy-duty "clear" plastic.

Re: Baggett and Sons East Coast Road Trip

This is the first that I've seen of your trip East, Charlie. I think that there is the opportunity, if you could get the word out. SailNet alone will not cut it. Is Annapolis the only destination, or are you going to other ports?

I have definitely run into this. Worse than paying for the unskilled labor to learn is that you likely end up with hack work. And I've actually had a hard time even getting an estimate, even with very well defined work.

We have no set destination as yet. Still defining what boats are where and need what done to them.
