Paint Job for My Boat

Hi my name is Ricky and I am so new to this lol! I just bought a C&C 27 and it need the bottom to be cleaned and boat needs to be re-painted.. the Paint looks worn out.

I live in the DC, MD, VA area, does anyone know the cost of getting it halled out the water and getting the boat bottom re-painted and hull painted also?

Re: Paint Job for my boat

Ricky if your talking about the top sides alone and not the decks and non skid your probably in the 6-8 thousand range. This is what I do for a living on Long Island, so I imagine your cost on the east coast would be pretty close to NY. Try to find a yard that has their own good painter/body glass guy, then you can probably get a package deal on geting haulked blocked painted and put back in. If you get a guy outside the yard the standard upcharge is 20% to the yard, so if your bill is 10 form the painter it will really be twelve by the time the yard gets their piece.

Re: Paint Job for my boat

I hope you are prepared for sticker shock, I got a bid for my previous boat that wasn't bad, it needed a bottom job and sides repainted, it was 30ft, they wanted $225.00 a ft. I decieded I didn't mind the paint so bad after that. So I polished the sides and did the bottom myself for a $1000.00.

Re: Paint Job for My Boat

ricky, those prices may be standard in the northeast, but here in daytona beach we have an excellent painter who charges a whole lot less. like $100 a foot. add to that the cost of haulout and daily storage - couple of hundred dollars, and it's almost worth not doing it yourself. he uses awlgrip, considered to be one of the best paints.

he just did our club's pearson 30 for $3000. did a really great job. if you can wait till you get here, email me.

Re: Paint Job for My Boat

Ricky, I like your thoughts about the beer and hotdogs, but if you want a job that your going to be proud of its going to take a little more than that. SV.Lone star is correct, you are going to have to find a do it yourself yard, that will pull the boat and set it up, Most yards are going to charge around $500 for that, that includes putting it back in the water. Then they are going to charge so much per/day that it is out of the water. You are going to need tools, paint, sandpaper, and everything else, The cost of Awl grip paint alone will be at least $1000.00 bucks if you do it right with primmer. This will be no easy overnight job. There is also the roll and tip methed which is easy to learn, but you need to practice it before you start on your boat. There are tons of videos on this, just google it and you will see. Make sure you have your ducks in a row before you start the project. If you have a friend that has done something like this before pay him or her to help, it will make your life and job much better. Hope this helps, good luck.

Re: Paint Job for My Boat

check out the current thread on 'polishing Linear Poly paint' alot of info on DIY vs having a pro paint.

just depends on your experience level and what final results you are willing to accept.

Price can run anywhere from $500-$30k

good luck

Re: Paint Job for My Boat

Do it yourself. Roll and maybe tip, get a mohair roller. Thin the paint out a bit and it will look great. Bright side. 4-5 coats.
