Bottom paint for me is about a gallon. The boat needs to be hauled and blocked, power washed. Then maybe some wet sanding
, masking, bushes, thinners, roller pan and sleeve, new zinc(s) ($350? yard does it x 2.5)
Wax hull... super structure $50 yard does it x 8
36' sail, Long Island
320, 32ft, Twin Mercruiser 350 Horizon 300HP FWC, V-drive, plan to leave in water over winter, with bubbler, like other boats.
I hear you don't have to de-winterise as you just start things up in the spring.
I will have to pay someone to do most of the stuff since age is catching up. But then again, it is because of age that I now have time to boat
I am not familiar with Zinc(s) , how does that factor into fresh water versus sea water ?
