Fair Prices for Maintenance

If you pay someone else to work on your boat what do you pay for hourly or by the foot:

1. Bottom Cleaning and Zincs (in water, diver)
2. Diesel Mechanic
3. Rigger
4. Electric Systems
5. Electronics and Mechanical (non-engine) work
6. Bottom Paint
7. Haul Outs


any other ones are good too, that's just what came to mind

Haul outs, pressure washing, waxing, buffing, and bottom painting are generally charged by the foot, where the other systems are generally either charged by the hour or the project.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

This can vary widely from region to region. Here in the Bay Area, you can expect to pay about $2.25/foot for hull cleaning. Zinc replacement is generally $10.00/zinc, plus the cost of the zinc. In the L.A. and San Diego areas, knock about seventy five cents to a dollar off the hull cleaning rate.

At my marina, for bottom painting, use of the travel lift alone will run you about $300 for a boat 30 to 35 feet.

$70/hour straight up on any mechanical/electrical and engine work. I believe diving is quite expensive. Haul out is about $7/foot and includes pressure washing of the hull. Waxing...I have no idea. Little Current, Ontario

Mission Bay San Diego. These rates roughly reflect the market which imho are high. I can't find a place that is reasonable for the "do it yourselfer."

Yard labor $80/hr the yard fee just for a layday is $3 a foot per day.
