Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Martinique

Hi Eric,
   I had my rigging down also in March 2017,  Caraibe did a good job, I think the rig looks good.  Only complaint was the genoa furling motor wired backwards.  Not a big deal and easy fix.  Materials and metal work very good, associated work needs more attention.

Hello Ken,

I caught them putting the genoa on the starboard track… they had to make it right.  But I took time to explain why the genoa had to go on port track.  It should not happen again for an Amel.

Hello Eric,

Gaetan Rivet Caraibe did my standing rigging 5 months ago.  Looks good, and was a bit more than 10K euros for the entire job.  The only thing I could complain about is that they put the genoa on the ballooner track.  I didn't find this out until I wanted to fly the ballooner..  :( 

Was very pleased with their service.

Hi Eric,
   I just had Caraibe rerig SM 37.  They were fast and efficient.  You might save some $$ on VAT by talking to Douglas Rapier at Douglas Yacht Services.  I obtained a VAT exemption certificate from him that covered all the work and purchases for my refit in Marin.
Regards,  John
