Re: Floated off the stands

$300 per foot for reprint is about standard. If you shop around, you may get it down to $250ish and be sure to have them throw in the haul and launch and perhaps unstepping/restepping the rig (doubt they will tune it for free). The way to negotiate is to get them to do the things that actually cost them virtually nothing on a marginal basis, but save you real money. But, be sure they are good painters, not some overspray wizard that always wanted to paint a boat.

There are guys around here that speak of a yard in Maine that is supposed to be very good and they talk of acquaintances that take their last sail of the season up there and leave her on the hard to be painted over the winter. They speak of it costing half, between paint and winter storage. I would have to track them down for the name.
