Bottom Job $$$?

I need to get a bottom job on a 1982 34 O Day. The survey indicates that an epoxy barrier was applied over an old layer of anti-fouling paint. It sounds like it will all need to be taken all the off.
What sort of expense am I looking at to have all layers removed and bottom paint re-applied? There are only a few small blister spots I will also have fixed.
Also, should I apply another epoxy barrier coat or go with antifouling paint only?
The work will be done in the Corpus Christi TX area. I will not be doing the work myself although I wouldn't mind rolling some paint on.
I will try to attach a picture of what I am working with.
