Boat yard in Oxnard or Ventura wanted
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.
