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 to Grenada in early December. Not sure I will remember how to sail. Will spend the winter and early spring in the Caribbean and then head to Bermuda and the northeast US. Still trying to decide if we will bring the boat to Canada, either in 2015 or 2016.
