Is this an OK price to paint our bottom?
We're looking to have our bottom painted before we leave the Bahamas (so we can get the "good" paint). Pelican is 40' (LOA), about 12'8" beam and has a 6' draft. We were quoted $3,400 to haul Pelican, power wash the bottom, blocking, prep for paint, paint and relaunch. Apparently the good paint is about $350/gallon here. The price seems kind of high, but everything is kind of pricey here in the Bahamas. Supposedly the good paint will last at least 4-5 years with a retouch here and there. We also had a hard ground and have to repair our keel, so we want to haul sooner rather than later anyway. Any thoughts?
