I am looking at having my Merlin Re-decked (My crew put his knee through it at the weekend) but not sure where to take it. The Boat is based in Derbyshire. I took her to Dinghycraft earlier this year but wasn't impressed with the out come or the service. Any one have any rough Idea's on how much it will cost.

£1,000+ if not more. Labour, quality marine ply, fitting & fixing then varnishing (6 coats min). Does your insurance cover for accidental damage?

Your insurer can probably help with this most have lists of approved boatbuilders.

Have you tried Kevin Driver? I know he has a bit on at the moment but he does do a 'luverly' job and has my ship booked in for some titivation come February! His phone no is 01297 23434 and when Millennium Falcon got hurt a couple of years back the insurance company I used had him on their list of approved hospitals!

Also a day trip to Beer would be well worth it if only to see the wonderful East Devon scenery...............

Brett Dingwall does a great job and is on most insurance lists. Just a hop down the M1 he's based near M25/M1.
