My last bill for a "bottom job" ,- pressure wash and paint (trindad 75) for my 41' ketch was $1,200 and I stretch this with my own cleaning to once every three or even four years. Be cautious with the DIY sanding of the bottom. If you sand through the barrier coat, you can trade an impervious hull for a crop of blisters! Growth on the fiberglass hull only slows it down when it's present. There's no harm in cleaning ans scraping off the growth while in the water to save some money. 'take care and joy, Aythya crew
