Am I getting ripped off??? Another boat cost rant.
I would appreciate some advice on a paint job issue.
I am rebuilding a 27' catamaran. The boat was in serious need of a new paint job. I have already had the entire boat soda blasted (topsides, mast, etc). I have even removed ALL the hardware. What I want is to get the boat primed, faired, and repainted. I'm doing the non skid deck and i'm doing the bottom paint. Literally I just want the hull sides, rudders, and spars painted. (think two 27' long canoes).
I am getting crazy quotes all over the place. $11,000 to $2500. What do you think would be a reasonable sum to do such a job. I was thinking maybe a couple grand but most quotes are close to 4,000. (BTW... 3 coats prime an 2 coats Awlgrip or Awlcraft)
Keep in mind the boat is sodablasted and free from all hardware so most of the PITA work has been done.
I would appreciate anyone's thoughts.
