Been there done it did it, spend the grand, let the yard do the whole job.By the time the job is over your enzyme levels will be going through the roof.Chemicals are nasty ,easier to let the yard take care of it all. And that seems reasonable price to me.

I owned and ran a small boatyard for 10 years. The BEST treatment for almost any metal that is underwater is still Coal Tar Epoxy. 3 coats. No matter how the surface is prepared, sanded, blasted, wire-wheeled, etc.
While the third coat is "tacky", but NOT wet, put on the first coat of anti-foulant.
Best is blasting.
In any case, have fun.
