Realistic Quote or Not

I got a quote from the marina folks for replacing a thru-hull for the engine in-take.

The in-take is currently a strainer thru-hull 1/2". I am switching over to a 3/4" thru-hull with a proper seacock. I already have removed the thru-hull, so there is just the old hole in the boat now.

The yard wants $1380 to do the job. I think this is excessive, but wanted to get others opinions. The labor rate is $75/h. They are estimating 16 h or labor and $300 in parts/materials.


If you liked my advice/response, give me some rep points. If you didn't......well what do you expect, it was free.
