I just paid $2,354 for a haul out; pressure wash; two coats of trinidad 75; changed cutlass bearing and shaft zinc; buff and wax entire freeboard; cosmetic fill and touch up four dings; and the name painted on my transom. This was for my 41' Morgan at a competitively priced North Florida yard. My cost would have been near a thousand less if it was just for the pressure wash and paint. I was quoted $1,500 for the pressure wash with one coat at a Virginia yard. I used to get a price about 25% less in the Bahamas at Man-o-War Cay and I get quotes about 25% higher from New Jersey to Mass. and then lower again in Maine.
