Professional Boat Painters in Boston

Hi All-

I've just purchased a 1984 29 C&C Mk II. I'm looking to paint the topsides with either Awlgrip or Imron over the winter/spring. Does anyone have any recommendations for operations in the Boston area that can winter store and paint the boat in the spring? I'm want to avoid an additional haul charge for moving it around.

So far I've only found Onset Bay Marina, which would work. Although, I was hoping to find someplace closer to Boston.

Also, any thoughts on Awlgrip vs Imron. I've read a few threads, but any additional feedback is welcome. I'm leaning towards Imron based on that fact it seems you can path it up over time.

Custom Fiberglass in Weymouth does excellent painting, and will store the boat.

I believe that kingman's in Cataumet do good work, while Parkers there is first class ($$$$), both include storage several regards...

A bit of a trip for you, but both myself and a friend had great results with a company in Bristol, RI, called "All Paint." No affiliation, just a satisfied customer. My experience with this is there is a big difference between a good and a great job. When these guys were done, there was no fun house mirror effect, you could shave in the reflection. Painting is all they do.

I did it mid season, but my friend did haul and store as you described. They work with a yacht yard in Bristol for the rest. Good luck.
