Maybe someone took her out for a joyride. But with 37' of waterline and a fairly long keel, we're in for a lot more paint than you used.

You should do some calling around, some yards are more pricey than others. Ask about per-gallon prices on paint; and try to get an estimate for your bottom paint/labor prior to hauling. It also depends on if you are planning on doing some of the work yourself or if you are going full-service. I believe Bay Marine is more DIY'er friendly than KKMI; but not sure. Looking at KKMI's online fee schedule; you pay more for the per-day if you don't hire them for a minimum # of work hours per week. I did my haul-out work in Napa; but that is also because it was where I purchased the boat. They have reasonable prices, allow DIY on everything, knowledgable helpful staff; but travel to Napa is arduous if you are doing lots of work. If you do take your boat to Napa be sure and have a chart of the river and follow it closely; the channel is narrow in several places. If you plan on having the boat out for a few months to dry out the hull; Napa has a huge dry-storage yard.
