Hourly rate for Brightwork

I really need to work on the exterior teak on my boat, and got a quote from a local shop. I thought I needed to have my hearing checked, when I was told the rate was $70/hr. Last time it was done, was around $25/ hr.
When I told a painter friend, who is an excellent craftsman ($12/hr), he was just amazed people actually pay that in the marine business.
Any recommendations for reasonable craftsmen in the Deale area?
Thanks for the input,
Bernd
