Re: Hourly rate for Brightwork

Pure capitalism at work -- they are charging what the market will bear (and at HHN, the bears run around in many cases with big fat wallets.) Don't forget that the yard is passing their overhead costs on to you. That means employee wages, health insurance, yard bonding/insurance fees, etc, etc.

From what I've seen at HHN, you can expect at least two guys to be working on your boat should you go that route. They do decent work, and actually seem to take the time to sand, clean, mask, prep, and finish the work. Having said that, I am aware of a few folks who have been less than thrilled with the results.

I take it that DIY is not an option for you?
