Where is the best place for a bottom job in Stuart?

Some of my bottom paint fell off from the pressure/movement? of the jack stands during Dorian. I was due for a bottom job anyway, and need to find a place I can get it hauled ASAP.

Ideally find somewhere that has a good fiberglass guy in case any damage is found from the pressure of the stands

The rigger that Iím using in Stuart (Travis Mack of Mack Sails) suggested Port Salerno for the bottom assessment.

Have to agree on A&J. Steve is the main guy, Dorothy in the office. They also allowed me to stay on the boat during the work. Great eats are walking distance.

I was impressed with Hinckley in Stuart, fair prices, good work and an extreme effort to please the customer. That was a couple of years back, but I'd go there again for sure.

Finally got it arranged. Couldnít get into any of the places mentioned earlier. Will put the boat at Allied Marina in Stuart for a month or so waiting on a new mast and Apex Marine and Travis Mack and I look at the bottom tomorrow. This is the same place I used when the mast and rigging was installed a few years ago.

I really hate going to repair yards, but I donít want to do a bottom job myself. Travis is knowledgeable when it comes to Island Packets, so hopefully he can give me some good direction.

I'm wondering how your insurance company is treating you through all this? You have certainly gone above and beyond most owners efforts to reduce their exposure?

River Forest did mine $45/ft.

Was such a good job I didn't want to put it in the water.

They have not done much. Sent a Bahamain surveyor from Nassau over to look at it but have not seen a report yet. Iím getting my own estimates together and will send them in soon.

My insurance company did send me a non-renewal letter telling me they were getting out of the market because they lost their reinsurance contract with Lloydís. Iím guessing they have a few claims. I sure hope they donít go under.

My policy ends 11/7 so Iím trying to hustle to get the ball rolling faster. I have a claim number already and the process has been started, but I want to speed it up. My policy had a big $8000 named storm deductible so I wonít get very much out of them Iím afraid. The insurance company is Global Marine and the agency is Anchor Marine.

Any pointers on how to deal with the insurance company are appreciated.

What I like about the Stuart area is, great mom and pop sea food restaurants and everything is close.

Yes Stuart is a great town. Really good restaurants. The water coming from the lake is super gross however and causes lots of growth IIRC. And the inlet scares me, but Iíve never been through it so maybe itís just the fear of the unknown.

SMILE There is a lot of stories about that inlet. When I was at Chapman's, we trained on that inlet. Never had a problem. If you don't know or don't listen to the stories, you wont have any problem if you use common sense. Don't get too close to the nav aids. Some are floating and on chains.
Now, you want a fun inlet, try Haulover, north of Miami. It is narrow, has a delta, so stay close to the shore .... A good depth sounder is a strong suggestion. The key is to stay close enough the shore, once under the bridge but, not too close or you will end up on the rocks.
I think there are a number of videos of small boats using Haulover.... Again, common sense and picking your tide action, ride the waves.

PM me if you need assistance of any sort. We are 30 minutes away in Jupiter, know the Stuart area, have a pickup truck for whatever need, garage full of power tools, table saw, drill press, miters, boat parts, etc etc. and helpful attitudes! I will PM you contact info. At a minimum can meet you and, on behalf of the TF Crew, take you to dinner as a thank you for the boating adventure you are giving all of us. RT Firefly told me to be sure and invite EVERYONE who can come and he would pick up the tab. Such a nice guy!
