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

I had a 32'' Pearson stripped to the gelcoat last year by the yard. That cost $2800. The labor time you mention was about right.

An additional $2500 to fill a few blisters, barrier coat and bottom paint, plus all new hoses, though hulls, and seacocks. The P323 is fin keeled.

Pretty happy with the work - very happy that I did not have to do the sanding.

No to bead blasting. Already stripped. I''m just fishing for entrepreneurial ideas. Want to set up to do boat bottoms with high percentage recovery of hazardous wastes at a price lower than labor costs for stripping. The second writer to this inquiry confirmed my suspicions. I should''ve charged for the blister job I did, since they rockpiled the raceboat while I was in Maine, and my forays to St. Martin and Puerto Rico for the Heinekens are now off the calendar. I''d get a boat into Independent before April if you want any work done. They''re always busy, but willing to charge you for anything, anytime...KW

ken,
i''m sending kimberlite over in the next few days to get sanded and painted. i''m so busy with stuff for the new boat that i haven''t had a chance to see kimberlite.
i have to go over to france in the next few weeks to go over the options with the factory. keep an eye out for kimberlite. she should be on the hard for a few weeks till i
can get back to st thomas to check her out below the water line and get her launched for a sail.
best wishes
eric

I''ve been stuck in court during the week and rewiring a center console stinkpot on weekends. Got an education on trim tabs and poor "rewiring" jobs. Somebody rewired this thing 3x over. I''ll go over to AYH this afternoon and do the laying on of hands. I''d be curious to find out how much Peter charges you for the bottom painting...Kevin W.

Experience with cost of stripping?

I removed my 35'' bottom myself this summer for less then $300 (4 layers of antifoul & primer) in supplies, however, the toxicity of the airborne paint and resins made me think twice about doing it ever again regardless of safty gear and $ savings. My point is that you may have trouble locating yards that permit it w/out permits (especialy in CA).
