I recently bought a 26' sailboat and have it hauled out for bottom paint
. I was originally planning on doing it myself, after reading the marina rules carefully, I thought it might be worth paying a business to do it.
First off, there aren't a ton of boat repair
shops, and even fewer who actually responded to my request for a quote. The one quote I got at the marina wanted to charge $50/ft ( = $1300+tax) for a standard sanding
+ 2 coats of Interlux
multi-season ablative. This does not include haul out
, pressure washing
, etc. because I've already done all that.
For any PNW boat
owners, how normal does this quote sound to you? Any recommendations for bottom painters in the area? (Everett marina)
