Boat yard in Oxnard or Ventura wanted

Well, I finally bought my boat! A Jeanneau Sun Odyssey 51, 1991. It is a fixer, but solid otherwise.

I would like to know what yard in Oxnard or Ventura CA is recommended to do things like bottom , job re-rig my boat after it is delivered on a truck from back East...Bottom job( some blister repair and paint etc.)and misc. electric work (adding a watermaker).

Any contacts would be helpfull and any advise and experiences would be great.

Congratulations on your boat.
There are two in Ventura and at least that many in Channel Islands.
It might depend where your going to get a slip which place you want to go.
I took mine to:
Anchors Way Marine
1644 Anchors Way Dr.
Ventura, CA 93001
(805) 642-6755
and had no issues to speak of.
They also give a 10% discount if you have a gold card from the Alamar Marinas
So does this place in Oxnard
Anacapa Boat Yard
23030 S. Victoria Ave.
Oxnard, CA 93035
(805) 985-1818

Dave

dont even think about living aboard there.I lived there for 15 years and was constantly rousted by the overgrown sea scouts.Its a nice place overall but there is no intercoastal waterway,the water is cold dark and deep.my time there was magic and tragic.I did get to do alot of sailing there .they are all a bunch of wannabees.I took a silent vow never to go back except by way of water.if you ever come back wipe the dirt off you shoes first.this way you wont bring back any earth quakes.the place in oxnard is the best.I was there quite a few times with several boats and thats probably where I will go to in the event I ever return

After I answered your post last week I talked to a few friends and the general consenses was that they would not have any yard do more work on their boat than what was necessary.
Have the yard in Oxnard prep the boat, then fix the blisters and paint it yourself.
Get your boat back to your slip and have the rest of the work done there.
If you want, send an E-mail to dachoate@imation.com and I can give you phone numbers and names of individuals that can help you.
Dave

ps
I don''t know, but the last time I heard of a boat being damaged by an earthquake was ...... oh never. If you come from Florida please leave your hurricanes behind.
Got to agree the water is too damn cold.

Good luck on your new boat. What you want to check in these two harbors, is whether you can bring it in and out without a lot of difficulty. For a large boat, there''s only two who can handle it without difficulty. Also, check on the add-ons, the yards have found a way to make a few extra bucks by adding on things like environmental waste disposal, they still pump it into the harbor, but they charge for it, restrictions on painting, what kind of work can you do yourself, and if you need something done that you can''t do yourself, is there someone at the yard that can do it. I had a bitch of a time with custom zincs, but the machinist at Ventura Boat Yard was able to tweek zinks off the shelf and make them work. Call Otto, he''ll give you an honest deal.

Anacapa boatyard is still pretty good, kinda pricy, they''ve gone through personnel lately and who knows? Channel Islands Boatyard, If you want people who know less than you do, go ahead.

Anchor''s way, in Ventura, good, tough to get in and out, and there are some add''l fees you''ll need to sort out.

Check around, make a list, and compare prices.

Ian
