We had a crack in the combined bimini support and wind generator mast, which needed welding by TIG in situ. When we were moored at Marina Taina last December I asked advise from the Taina's director Philippe Olite on a suitable welder and a place where the welding could be done. He recommended brothers Philippe and Damien Girault and the work dock of Marina Taina.
Philippe Olite was kind enough to call the Girault brothers as I was afraid that I will have communication difficulties. We had to wait a few days because of very wet weather, and then took Irene to the work dock. Philippe Girault came as agreed with a van where he had the argon gas tank with a long enough hose to reach the work dock from the parking lot. Electricity was readily available from the work dock. The crack in the wind generator mast was quickly welded and Philippe repaired also our swimming ladders. He did not speak any English, but we had no communication problems. We were very satisfied with the quality of the work and price.
