Looking for Annapolis recommendations

Hello All,
I just bought a 1990 Hunter 37.5 and before I put in back in the water it needs a few tweaks. It's in Annapolis and I've never owned a boat there so I'm looking for recommendations.

Here's what I'd like to accomplish, in order:
  • Recondition mainsail
  • Add a windlass (never had one)
  • Replace broken seacock on the head
  • Add a GPS/plotter
  • Replace lifelines (I'm handy, so I may be able to do this myself with a kit.)
  • Repair knot meter
I'd like to have the sail done in about 3 weeks so I want to try to stay local.

One issue I have is that I don't live in the area so I have to find reliable, honest people.

Thanks in advance

Re: Looking for Annapolis recommendations

Those all sound like good projects. I can't recommend anybody in that area, though (I don't know anybody in the area, not that anybody is bad). I would recommend against reconditioning the sail, though. What do you hope to accomplish by this? At best, all you will do is "resin in" the already blown-out shape. Save your money toward new sails.

Bert Jabin's on Back Creek allows do-it-youself projects and also has a fleet of shops that can do anything you could need done. I would not suggest using N+Kenny Krasco ( do-it-again-Ken) for electronics work. Quantum is just up the road and UK is on the other side of the crrek. A frind of mine runs a refit company out of there in the summer months. His name is Miles Poor.

Very nice work, promptly done and competitively priced.

Re: Looking for Annapolis recommendations

I am a big fan of Quantum for sail work. Seaside Boatworks located Jabins can do the thru-hull and probably do the windlass. West Marine up the road can replicate your lifelines.

Re: Looking for Annapolis recommendations

Give Bacon Sails a call. They are on the net and a quick search for used sails for your Hunter 37.5 turned up several. I have bought from them before and will in the future. I have no business or financial interest in them.

We had quite a bit of work done at Hartge Boat Yard. HARTGE YACHT YARD HOME PAGE

Dick is your guy for installing the chartplotter/GPS and other electronic mysteries.

Re: Looking for Annapolis recommendations

SpecialD,

I saw that you did not recommend Ken Krasco for electrical work. Can you provide more insight into why you would not recommend him. He was recommended by another friend who I trust. I'm looking to install a generator in my Lagoon 380 cat and it is a sizable investment, so I would like to make sure I'm getting a reputable mechanic to do the job.

Please let me know,

Thanks

Bob Norton

Re: Looking for Annapolis recommendations

Call Bill Barlow at Annnapolis Yacht Harbor located in Bert Jabins. Bill is a ling time live-aboard cruiser who has been working there for several years. He just took on the role of Service Manager.

No fiduciary interest. But I know Bill and can recommend him highly.
