Scrub My Bottom in Antigua

Can anyone out there tell me what it should cost for a diver to give a bottom scrub ($ per foot) in Jolly Harbour. I've been quoted $4 US which seems high? Boat is 52' loa 42' lwl.

Thanks guys

$4? Jimminy Crickets!
Let's see, warm gin-clear water, few barnacles, 20 minute job max!

Jolly Harbor locals will charge you whatever they can. Independent locals in thrid world countries operate on the barder system and sometimes feel insultaled if you agree to the first price. Name a fee and suggest that you may have it done in Falmouth or English harbor.
