and I think it's a 3 day job......something like that

I pulled the quote and this is how it reads;

Haul vessel, Hydrowash bottom and hardstand. Wetstand entire bottom with 60 grit wet/dry, High speed sand away any failing bottom paint above the water line that is dry or chipping or that diver has may have rubbed bare. Feather all edges and apply high-build epoxy primer. Strip all underwater metals to bare metal ( such as struts trim-tabs,thru-hulls etc. ) Apply zinc chromate epoxy and two coats of high-build epoxy to bare metal. Apply one coat ( two with yard approved diver ) Pro-line #1088, Interlux Super KL or Seahawk Sharkshin bottom paint to entire bottom and two coats to the waterline, leading edges, hardware and all high-wear areas. Launch vessel. Entire process takes approximately three days. This price includes the above listed paints and labor to change zincs

Note: Extra charge for antifouling paints note listed above

Vessel/Length: 37' sail

Price: $1480.00


So I pulled a Pelosi on the extra paint without one of their approved divers; You get one coat AF with two at leading edges, waterline & high-wear areas, you get two coats with a approved dive with three everywhere else

This is utterly absurd. Metals do not metabolize in 3 days. Metals definitively cause some diseases (mercury poisoning, lead poisoning) and have been implicated in others (Alzheimerís, MS). To say tin will not harm marine life also defies common sense. Where do you think it's anti-fouling properties come from?

I don't get why I have to use one of their approved divers to get two coats on the haul. I figure if I'm willing to pay for two coats, I should get two coats no mater what diver I use...What difference should it make to them...am I missing something here?

Oh I'm sure if you wanted to PAY for the second coat it wouldn't matter WHO your diver is., I think this is just their basic no frills package

My diver is on their list and just happens to have his office in their yard.......go figure

I've hear decent things about the Shelter Island yard, and that's where we will probably will take our boat, but I'm going to ask them what their rationale is for the two coats/our diver policy//one coat/your diver policy.
