Re: New purchase, needs bottom paint, no trailer

If you figure out the type of seacock you have, and get the parts and supplies together before pulling the boat, you might get it all done in 3 days. That assumes the bottom is in ok condition and does not need epoxy work etc.

It is too bad there is not a yard where you can do the work yourself without hauling the boat on a trailer. Most of the time the boat is pulled, put on jackstands next to the water and then re-launced from there. Make sure you research this. Becuase of environmental laws some work in my state has to be done by yard workers, I recall sanding is one. Pianting and seacock work should be OK by owners.
