I am tryin gto ind the right word(s) to say... but I guess THAT SUCKS is the best I can come up with. Somehow I have managed to miss the really bad yards. You seem to be stuck with them.
I would be such a squeaky wheel to get that thing fixed, they would prioritize me just to not have to listen to me anymore. I agree with John, sailing is supposed to be relaxing - not that crap.
I am very happy to see you posting around here again. I can't wait to see more pics of you cruising and enjoying your boat. You know that you can leave your boat, and leave sailing, but it can never get out of your blood... don't you?
You are a great guy. Things will turn out alright. I will PM you too.

No its not so much the dammage that happened as it could have been way worse... its just getting disheartening to see yet another Summer come and go without sailing her...and this one was a beaute to boot hot with wind, not like that often around here.
Our agreement was to have her compleated by May first. This yard caters to mega yachts and commercial fishing boats so I have ended up the kicked around red headed step child so to speak...
As Charlie mentioned, they made me wait almost 2 weeks for the crane to be available for my job and no sooner I get it they pull it off after one day...half way through the repair to go do something else that was more inportant and could not wait one more day I guess..So I wasent there when they set it back down and re-picked it again...thats when things went south...well actually "West"..Ha!....it would not have happened had they not did that.

|CharlieCobra||Yep, the yard did that to his boat. The same yard that made him wait forever to pull the mast and re-step it for some wiring work because they didn't have the time, pulled it and then decided to set it back to run and go do something for another boat. When they came back and hooked up again, the slings slipped and that happened.|

I somehow missed your note back in June, so it is good to hear news from you. But I'm sorry to hear about the mast/deck damage.
Here's hoping the clouds part soon (they always do eventually) and you're back on the water again for a glorious autumn. - John
