Paint Costs

I am the proud owner of a Windrose 20. The paint is in very good condition except for some stains that no amount of elbow grease or stain removers seem to remove. There is no blistering or chipping evident anywhere on the boat BUT; I am not happy with the appearance of these stains. SO, I have no good place to work on the boat, assuming I knew how to effect a new paint job. What would a reputable boat yard charge to paint a boat from top to bottom?? Or should I just shut up and live with the stains?? The boat is cream with light blue trim.

Stains

Are you sure that it is paint that is stained or is the gel-coat stained?

It would also help if you posted photos of the staining... different stains require different approaches...and location can often help say what caused the stains... and whether the stains are indicative of another problem or not.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Hull paint runs from about 175/foot to 200/foot at a good yard. I am about to have mine painted too, that is how I know. That does not count the deck, of course. You could add a safe 50% top that number for the deck. Thus, you are safely looking at $4000-6000 (at 20 feet boat) for Emrond or Awlrgrip.
