    The fires made the Drudge report. The combined value of the 2 yachts was 22 million dollars according to the news report.

        Well that makes it official! 😂😂

        I doubt there is one sub (or even all of them combined)that carries a policy that high to fully cover a loss like that.
        First I ever heard of a DYI bote yard. Need to get off the island more. Thankfully no one was hurt.

          Andy,
          Times, there are a changing.
          There are not as many full service yards as there used to be down here in the big bote market.
          LMC, Rybovich, Dania Superyacht are all or mostly D.I.Y.
          They will haul the bote, charge you storage (alot) and you can select your own subs and pay direct. Yacht s and engineers are now Project Coordinators and that provides for interesting scheduling sometimes.
          The yards run with minimal employee's and liabilities. I never thought it would work, well, it is big business. No loyalty, but big business.

            Sounds like lots of insurance lawyers got involved over potential for liability and decided things needed changing at some point not too long ago

                Cracker Boy in Riviera was DIY in the mid 80s. Supplies were supposed to be purchased from them unless you had a panel van to smuggle everything in and periodically purchase from there to avoid suspicion.

                  I wonder what that DYI agreement looks like between the yard and owner and the yard and subs/dyi'ers. Maybe they require a rider to cover the value of the yacht they are working on? Or the owner signs off on holding the yard responsible for anything? Interesting business model. I wonder how they work out electrical, compressed air supply, stuff like that.

                    Ok, so, now you have two (2) sunken hulls, one 107' and the other161'.
                    Where do you haul them, store them, dispose of them?
                    Lohengrin (161) isn't hard, it's a steel hull (I think), or alu-min-ium, but the 107'? FRP baby, not easy to dispose of.

                      I have an agreement somewhere around, it's like 10 pages long.
                      As for the other stuff, when I said they charge you, they CHARGE you. You pay for everything, even if you don't use/need it.
                      Electrical.
                      Garbage.
                      Air.
                      A/C towers.
                      Ladders.
                      Stuff like that.
                      EVERYTHING is charged for, and then some.

                          Often the subs pay the yard also for the privilege of working there. Stuff like soda blasting, thrusters is always subbed out.
