I installed mine myself. I can give you a guess, but there are a lot of variables.
A competnen installer working on a boat
that is cleared for actiion (meaning you know where you want it installed and have cleared out everything so he can get to work) and assuming you have all the materials, should be able to do this is about 2 days (big "if" here. Are you using a KISS counterpoise
? running a copper weave strap to a bronze
? going full guns
and laying a copper foil counterpoise
throughtout the interior hull
of the boat
My 2 day estimate assumes a copper strap to through hull or a KISS (not everyone believes a KISS works)
So if we say 2 days - what does he charge per hour (I don't know what west coast usa hourly charges are) and there will be some extra materials etc.
The 2 day estimate also assumes you are willing to help (there will be times/places where havng two sets of hands is big advantage)
I must go down to the seas again, to the lonely sea and the sky,
And all I ask is a tall ship and a star to steer her by
