Re: Hourly rate for Brightwork

"the SILICONE in the Thompson's has permanently destroyed tens of thousands of dollars" Yah, which is why some folks and most yards only want to know about INSURED contractors.
Porfin, I'd argue that brightwork DOES have a ticking clock and MUST be done on schedule. If you don't keep up with it, water gets under, wood deteriorates...Hey, how's that insurance policy?!
And than if you want to do the prep yourself, you've got all that varnish to dispose of, and you have to make sure you're not going to gash or burn or scrap the wood beneath the varnish as well. "Ooops" is forever in that case.
At a certain make your compromise. Which to many of us means going over to someone else's boat when we want to go "OOH! and AAH!" over brightwork. :-)
