Cost of Repaint

Anybody want to venture a guess as to what it costs to repaint the deck and cabin top of a 35 footer?

Re: Cost of re-paint?

If your doing the work and your buying paint wholesale its about $1,500 in materials. if your paying someone its minimum $4,500 if your using awlgrip.

Re: Cost of re-paint?

Way too many variables. Where, with what, and by whom are the first questions that come to mind. Followed quickly by what's on there now, and what condition is it in.

Best thing to do is call or email places and get estimates. Then add another 25% on top of the estimate and you will have the price. Do research ask advice from people on here and do it yourself. Unless you are wealthy then just pay someone to do it.

Re: Cost of re-paint?

If you are looking at a really professional job, removal of all deck hardware, good surface prep, awlgrip all around, in a good temp/humidity controlled out of the water paint shed, I would guess somewhere bewteen $6-7.5K,, if there is any repair work needed on the desk/house at all, probably $10k plus.

Non-skid included? Do you need to sand off an original skid to redo it? Is their a molded-in skid which will be a pain to prep? For a really good pro job, which involves pulling all hardware, prepping and priming, topcoating the smooth, laying non-skid and topcoating, then polishing and re-installing all hardware, you are definitely looking at 10k plus. Shooting a hull is quick and easy compared to doing this, no hardware to remove there. Also no non-skid, no tricky corners, etc. This is a much bigger job than painting the hull. At least you dont have to strip off any old material, original gel is easy to start with. Here's some bad pics of a typical deck job in our yard.

Re: Cost of Repaint

Wow, we're too damned cheap... We're doing a total repaint (hull and house), kiwi grip, bottom peel, blister job and epoxy coat, barrier coat, bottom paint to racing prep and some glass work for about 24K on an SC-50.

Hell, our deck job, including all hardware, would be about 5K. Too cheap I tell ya...

Re: Cost of Repaint

If you want somebody else (no D-I-Y) to do the job and cannot afford the price estimates mentioned by other posters, then you might consider taking the boat out of the USA where you will find the costs are half or less than what professionals in the USA need to charge to legally stay in business.

Re: Cost of Repaint

Transplant the boat to Thailand and the price will be 75% lower than Annapolis.

Re: Cost of Repaint

Last estimate we got in the Chesapeake area for a 39 foot, hull and cabin house, no non-skid was $25,000.00 and that was the lowest price. We eventually Awlgriped the boat ourselves and needless to say saved a lot of money. material cost was around $1,000.00. The hull was in pretty sad condition but mostly just deteriorating gelcoat. We are currently in the process of painting our new to us trawler. Chuck

Re: Cost of Repaint

Estimate I received for a 26' was $7-8,000 for kiwi grip. I did it for $1,200 in materials it was a lot of work. Stripping all hardware, prepping, awlgrip and sanded non skid. and rebedding all hardware. I probably could have made more money working however now I know the boat inside and out.

Re: Cost of Repaint

Annapolis? Stay away from Annapolis unless you have lots of money to burn. It is probably the
most expensive place on earth to have boat work done.

I just had a quote on a 32' boat, Awlgrip, deck&cabin no non-skid. $4500+ haulout & laydays.
This is in Green Cove Springs FL. The cheapest place on the Eastcoast for boat work.
If you do the Kiwigrip yourself add another $300 in materials.

Re: Cost of Repaint

What's with all the Kiwi Grip? I can't stand that stuff. It looks so cheap and crappy, impossible to clean well, feels just wrong on the feet. Poor longevity as well. I think people are getting suckered by the relative newness of this product. I doubt it will still be used in ten years.

Re: Cost of Repaint

+1 on the Kiwi Grip being a crappy product.

I don't understand why anyone would do all that work and put glorified truck bed liner on their deck.
