the expense of transporting workers and materials out to the island, a rugged rock often plagued by bad weather and rough seas

From my experience of many years owning property on an island and the recent costly expenditure of my island neighbor non-profit organization in restoration of the lighthouse property on this island I can very well appreciate the substantial expense of maintaining island property. One can expect even with the best of planning such work, the supplies, the materials and the tools, will cost easily twice what the same work would cost on the mainland. And tools often break. A failure of a critical tool, and without having a second as backup will cause costly delays. And with the supplies and materials open and verify the contents of boxed and packaged materials are correct before transporting to the island. In planning think about what can go wrong and plan and make provision for accordingly such.
