$45 to pressure clean? Wow. I've seen $150 on up a few times.
I'd kill for $300 per month on the hard...In the Houston area time out of the water is charged by the day, the yards are all on limited realestate and turn boats quickly.

Only places I can think that can haul you in the Ft Myers area would be
Diversified or Gulf Ways in Ft Myers Beach,
Owl Creek in Alva or
Belle Hatchee in LeBelle.

Hey SMJ, we have a Leopard 38 same size as your cat. We're currently in
S. Chesapeake area, we'll be looking for local yard that can haul out for bottom paint in few months. Was curious what marina you had used (if adm. allows)? Thanks!

Re: Cost for bottom paint

We used Wayfarers Cove in Arapahoe NC, but can only haul up to a 20' beam.

Hire this job out if you possibly can.
We have a strict "no professionals" policy on our boat and it has served us well. We broke that rule a couple of years ago when we were compelled to haul out at a non-DIY yard in La Paz for emergency repairs. In exchange for allowing me to do all the repair work on the boat I agreed to have the yard paint the bottom. They messed up the waterline and applied the paint too thin in some areas, too thick in others. $850 for one coat. Not a disaster, but it would have been done better had we done it ourselves.

It takes my wife and I less than 2 hours to sand and tape the bottom, another hour or so for each coat of paint. FWIW our last haulout was at Astilleros Cabrales in Puerto Penasco in the Sea of Cortez. Haul and launch with blocking was a little over $300. Monthly storage rate was $350. The yard manager bent over backwards to help us in any way he could. Not possible for everyone, I know, but if you are cruising there are options.
