BTW- the only problem with your first attempt was you left out the last bracket on the end of the code string.

yes about $100 a hr with a 4hr min is what I was quoted. I bet they would have taken 8hrs and 800 is what it cost me to paint it two coats.

The $100/hour rate is pretty standard in the hull cleaning biz, but charging for half a day on a job like this is not. Maybe this guy already makes too much money.

it was kinda an experiment. the idea was not to scrape as to keep the paint on as long as possible and it worked, but I didn't think about sailing it like that haha well we learn right? This time I used hard paint so the thinking is now I can have it done once a month.

Re: Boat Diver Question?

So you paid some restauranteur $40 to come and get all the fixings for his bouillabaisse? Which he's now going to sell for $24.95 per bowl?

Well, he's got overhead, ya know. Like the lawyer he has to hire to draw up the disclaimer on anything fished out of San Diego Bay.
