Getting serious work done in St. Maartin

Greetings all. We are currently in St. Maartin, Simpson Bay, and looking to get a potentially significant piece of work done on our 39' sailboat. It involves the prop shaft and associated support fittings. We've got what appears to be good recommendations on a cluster of facilities in the Simpson Bay area. Has anyone had good or bad experiences here? Our alternative is to head down to Antigua where we also have some very strong recommendations on a groupd of facilities in Falmouth Harbor. Any input is much appreciated.

Not had work done in either spot, but the availability of parts (and very good prices) is much better in St Maartin. Quite liked Island Water World; Budget Marine seemed to be misnamed. I know the one of the yards you referred to in Antigua and it looked quite good. Probably either would work out fine.

Back home on Lake Ontario after something over 36,000 nm circumnavigator. Not surprisingly there is a lot of stuff I want to get done on Ainia both cosmetically and functionally. Getting an early start so it will be ready to go for next summer (Lake Superior?).
