I am a new owner of a 50 foot Cat and it is in need of some exterior polishing up. The bottom paint
is ready to go, but up from there the hulls could use some buffing and the topsides are really dulled out and need it badly. The boat is 15 years old and I will be doing some minor mechanical refitting as it has been well maintained in that regard. I was wondering what a good bid would be to have someone on the east coast
do the work for me before I retire and move aboard this fall. I have a local to the boat boatyard bid and it is unbelievably high. Total 3 step process of compound, polish, and wax from the waterline up is $8,000. Please tell me this is as ridiculously high as I think it is. I know its almost all labor and a big boat, but I think I will look for someone else to do the job or wait until I retire and do it myself. The boat is in Beaufort
area now and will be stored in Brunswick, Georgia
so if anyone can suggest a good detail company I would be in your debt.
