Being a Machinist/Welder/Engineer, there is not too much I cannot build or imagineer (self made word). I rebuilt most of my diesel
myself except for the Machining required by a diesel
shop. It was out of necessity that I did all this.
I purchased this last boat in a yard and was stuck using them for the bottom job as they no longer allow people to sand or paint
bottoms. I was quoted $1000 for a sanding
rough areas and a single
coat of bottom paint
of my choice. What I got was...no sanding
at all and a mixture of various colors of bottom paint
they had lying around. The color was a purple/grey. I seriously doubt they used the brand I specified. Then they wanted $350 more! I had to remind them of their quote. I,m just glad to be back in the water
and out of there. I plan to strip and barrier the bottom in less than 2 years anyways.
