Pricing differs from Trinidad to Grenada to St. Thomas and Fajardo. Around the VI, it''s generally $11.00/foot/month for yard storage, usually including bowsprits. Hence, your boat will run at least $450/mo. plus haul, washdown, launch, mast step. You''re probably going to wind up in Trinidad or the South end of Grenada, since your insurance company will eliminate leaving the boat between around 23N and 12N. I think Trinidad storage might be cheaper. Professional yard work varies with what''s being done, but here I think they charge $35/hr. for basic labor and upwards for engine, welding, stainless fabrication, sailwork, etc. KW
