Thanks, guys, this is what I thought (feared). Is there some reason why this is more expensive than reapplying? The quote I got was 450 and the boat is only 17 feet. I was thinking it was going to be $20/foot or something.
Any advice? And how does the yard figure out where the water line is going to BE?
Yes. Do-it-yourself. It's not difficult at all; for a boat your size, a few hours start to finish (2 coats, so this is spread over 2 days).
If you use an ablative paint and run it 2 years, you will not have to sand (other than a few loose spots), only recoat.
