Bottom painting & haulout Prices Chesapeake Bay Spring 2010

Hello Walter -- Here are some prices for paint and labor from the updated spring 2010 price sheet from the marina I use near Baltimore. They do nice work and work hard at saving their customers money instead of nickle and dimeing you!

++++++++++++++++++++ From Old Bay Marina example price sheet:

25' Sailboat or Powerboat bottom painted for $175.00 and includes taping waterline, all materials (less paint) tape, rollers brushes, etc.

30' Sailboat or Powerboat bottom painted for $195.00 and includes taping waterline, all materials (less paint) tape, rollers brushes, etc.

35' Sailboat or Powerboat bottom painted for $225.00 and includes taping waterline, all materials (less paint) tape, rollers brushes, etc.


We have the lowest prices on bottom paint - We beat West Marine's catalog prices on bottom paint.

Micron with Biolux $191.36 gal.
Act with Irgarol $99.99 $267.77 for 3 gallon pail
Vivid Free new bottom paint from Pettit only $175.00 gallon

Seacock valves and thru-hulls serviced - Reasonable rates on stuffing box re-packing, shaft and propeller service.

Cutless bearing replacement.
+++++++++++++++++++++++++++

I must add that the marina DOES NOT sand your bottom for that price, they will Soda blast the bottom but this is very pricey at $40.00 per foot! They will pressure wash the bottom with a 4,500 PSI water blaster for free and this knocks off the loose paint and in most cases this is all that is needed for prep work --George
