Winter Work - The Yard Quote

So, the marina is offering a $500 labor credit for winter work projects. Seems, they are needed to fill up the shop under the auspicions of a "stimulus package" for their slipholders. Here's a copy of their quote. And, yes, they need to sharpen their pencils quite a bit. This is for a 34' J/Boat.

As I do the math, there is approx a 5X labor mulitplier to parts...a little rich. And, yes, I did the calcs on the inflated part prices. (An R&D coupler is $150 here in the sailnet store).

R&R Cutlass Bearing $318.75 4.25 hours @ $75
Parts: Cutlass Bearing 98.25
Miscellaneous material:* 14.75
Tax 6.78
Total $438.53


R&R Motor Mounts (Volvo 2003 28 hp) $960.00 12 hours @ $80
Parts:* 4 Volvo mounts @ $128.87, fasteners 515.48
Tax 32.13
Total $1,507.61

Install R&D Flex Coupling $1,600.00 20 hours @ $80
Unfasten shaft and engine coupling
Pull rudder
Pull shaft and coupling
Cut down shaft
Install flex coupling
Install shaft and motor coupling
Install rudder
Parts:* Flex coupling, fasteners 344.00
Tax 23.34
Total $1,967.34

Tune Rig $300.00 4 hours @ $75
Materials:* cotter pins, etc. 17.50
Tax 16.05
Total $333.55

Align Engine / Trans / Shaft $400.00 5 hours @ $80

Sub-total $4,647.03
Labor Credit ($500.00)
Grand Total $4,147.03

Agreed. And, it is exactly one of the questions posed back to the shop foreman when I asked them to tidy the quote.

just have them r+r the cutlass brg. and tell them you want $60 back.

$500 for nuts and bolts seems a little high for engine mounts.

You might wanna get the guy for only $75 per hour and maybe not.

I see a lot of overlaping work here.

Tell them you want to inspect each and every job done seperately before they go on to the next job.

why 12 hours to R and R motor mounts? i can see that kind of time figure in a repower where new mounts and bedding is needed, but not a straightforward R and R.

No surprise here. Does your Marina allow other mechanics to come on site and do work? Get another quote. Or do most of the work yourself. Of find another marina.

As others have said, ask them why there is duplicate work. At the end of the day - having someone else do works cost money and has to be in your budget...

The beat goes on, the beat goes on...

The grocery stores the super mart, uh huh
Little girls still break their hearts, uh huh
And men still keep on marching off to war
Electrically they keep a baseball score

The beat goes on, the beat goes on...
