Prep is more important than the actual finish coat and should be a large part of the cost of the project. All dings and scratches need to be repaired and the hull should be re-preped after the primer and base coat are applied. The finish is dependent on the hull prep and remember that all defects will be magnified by the new shiny paint.Ask what type of hull prep is included in the project. As this prep is labor intensive, much better prices can be had where labor is cheap - like in Trinidad or other locations in the Caribbean.
