I feel that you know your stuff when it comes to finishes and maintaining them, so I would like to ask a question.
I have a 36' sailboat that's kept in the water in a two boat slip. The hull has a fair amount of oxidation (not maintained by previous owners), and now that I have the boat I want it to look nicer. Since I've never done any detailing of fiberglass before (I can admit that), I thought that I would hire a professional to do the initial job, and then I could take over the maintenance.
How long do you think it would take to compound and wax a 36' sailboat in the water? ...and how much do you think I could reasonable expect to pay?
The work doesn't have to be as high quality as you're used to doing, but I would like something that is considered a little more than acceptable.
