Hello all!!!!

Hello my name is Jason. I am a graduate student working on my PhD. in Optical Science and Engineering as well as my MS in applied Physics. I also teach several undergrad Physics classes. I am a old sea dog when it comes to motor driven vessels but new to sailing.

Hey Captain Tom - I'm in Cabrillo Marina; looks like we may be neighbors. I just brought my E32-200 down today to a yard in NB for some work.

Cool

Long story neighbor- Since Colonial is going out of business next week, I approached Marina Shipyard. I just purchased the boat a few weeks ago and am having 6 new marlon thru-hulls put in, having 6 quarter size substrate blisters repaired, keel smile fixed and new bottom paint. Marina shipyard quoted me an "estimate" of $4100 and South Coast in NB quoted me a "not to exceed" price of $3500...so I brought her down today. I have a feeling Marina Shipyard is taking advantage of the situation and gouging people....spread the word. The guy across from me was also quoted $800 for a job that turned into $1600..go figure. Anyway, I hope South Coast does a good job since they've been around 30 years and they have that special lift (comes up from bottom) that doesn't stress the boat. You can see the video oh how it works on their website.
