We had various quotes for our 55ft boat which is both glued and has screws and they all were in the $30-40,000 range.
In Cartagena 2 carpenters spent 5 weeks taking up the deck, taking the teak to the shop and re-cutting the groves, re-laying the teak with Sikaflex, placing almost 2,000 screws and plugs and finally sanding the deck.
Total cost $4,000 including all materials and not the $40,000 they wanted in Trinidad.
