Cost of hauling

What is a rough estimate for a cost to haul a 40' boat for a survey? I know the cost of a survey, but I assume a buyer pays the hauling costs. What would that be? I assume the cost for hauling for painting each year is about the same. Any thoughts? I am in North carolina, so there is a competitive environment..

In Texas, my haulout for survey, which included power washing the bottom on a 32' boat, was $208. This included a free haulout within 30 days. And yes, buyer pays for haulout for survey, unless otherwise stated in the offer.

Based on my limited experience and research, costs for such a haulout might range from $4 to $8 per foot, or $160 to $320 for the boat you're looking at...

Skipper Bob's guide for Marina's along the ICW only lists 5 yards, because they are ones that allow "do-it-yourself" work. Here's the info:

Sailcraft Service, mile 181.0, $6/ft haul, $0.83/ft block, $20/day

Deaton Yacht Service, mile 181.0, $5/ft haul, $1/ft block, $45/day

Bock Marine Builders, mile 195.8, $4/ft haul, $2/ft block, $27/day

Jarrett Bay Boatworks, mile 197.3, $6/ft haul, $0/ft block, $54/day

Swan Point Marina, mile 246.8, $7.75/ft haul, $1.15/ft block, $18/day

You'll have the haul, and the launch, so double... hopefully you wouldn't need too many days on blocks for the survey. Good luck!

That's the info I needed - Thanks all! I know I hadn't thought about the haul and the launch being two separate charges, so that's something helpful to know....Thanks

For the survey, you will just need to hang in the slings for an hour or so. The yard will probably have a special charge for this, but you don't need to be blocked, and then launched again at a later date...

Just went through this myself. In Jamestown RI

$11/foot for a short haul, in slings 1hour and relaunch.

$16/foot for a haul where they cradle it for 24 hours to dry the boat long enough to get meaningful moisture meter readings. Avoids false positives.

$41.50/foot Haul, bottom pressure wash, storage outside, and relaunch in the spring.

These were quotes on a J/40.

Here's an idea that might save you a few dollars, at least it saved me. When I bought my Cat 36 I went through the boat thoroughly to make sure I was happy with everything. Then I arranged the survey which happened in 2 parts. First he went through everything while in the water and when that checked out OK I arranged the hauling. I had the deal ready to seal based upon the other inspections, so when the hull, keel, etc checked out OK, I immediately signed the deal and had the yard do some preventive maintenance (serviced the thru-hulls, fixed a few blisters, etc). It only cost me a day of yard time and I got to take advantage of the haul/launch that I had to pay for anyway. It felt good knowing that I wouldn't have to haul it again for a while.

Just had a survey done in Rock Hall, MD. $14.00 a foot. The rate here in the Philadelphia, PA area is slightly higher at $ 17.00 a foot.

The boat I was looking at was already winterized and "on the hard." The Rock Hall, MD rates is normally $ 210.00 for launching and the same for putting it back. $ 140.00 for the dewinterizing and the same for rewinterizing (engine, water tanks, hot water heaters). Since the launch and return was for a survey, and they were only dewinterizing/rewinterizing the engine they quoted me a rate of $500.00.

I have not seen the bill yet as sea trial was yesterday but, I expect the same actual rate as the quoted rate.
