Experience with cost of stripping?
We just stripped a 39'' fin keeled boat at a cost of about $1,200.00 for labor alone (2 guys, 50 hours, $12 apiece/hr (back to gelcoat). The yard cost would''ve been double that, I believe. I spoke with a glass expert and he told me $2500 to do a 40 foot boat. The presumption is sanding, sanding, sanding. Does anyone have any experience with pricing this stuff on a per-foot basis? Obviously a beamy, full keel boat will take longer, so a range is in order. Jeff H: Just curiosity. Can you guesstimate reasonable labor time for, say, a 40'' Beneslow with half a dozen coats of bottom paint on it??KW
