You know, at some point you'll better serve yourself and your boat to learn how to do these things yourself, so why not now? The prices that have been quoted are not extremely high, it's just a labor intensive job. Outside of the engine work, from what I'm reading everything you're looking to do is refinish/painting, is that correct? If it is, and if the boat is still at your Father's house, sounds to me like it's time to learn how wield a sander and paint brush and how to varnish. The sense of accomplishment, getting to really know your boat and education for the continual maintenance these beauties demand will prove to be invaluable. Plus, I've got this feeling your father could be a good teacher and may even enjoy the task. Good luck and keep us posted.
