Re: Bottom Paint dilemma
I though it was a lot of money too, for a boat not worth $3000.00, but like I said, i have no time. besides, they are the only ones that work on sailboats around here, not much choice, I called another guy and he's response was" what's a catalina 22??" he works on powerboats; lots of those around here... (inland lake)
I know I can paint in about one hour, that's not what takes time, the prep is what takes time, plus I don't want all that anti-fouling dust on my driveway.
The yard is not on the water so, i will have to trailer to them and I imagine they will use a lift, I know they have one, I've seen it.
I might just do it myself, take an entire weekend and deal with it. Sanding, washing, lifting the boat from the trailer (that alone would take 1/2 a day) painting, and lift the other end and do it again.....
