Re: Hull Inspection

Most marina's with a travel-lift will do a shorthaul & powerwash for $8/ft. It's worth the couple extra bucks to look at the hull, inspect the thru-hulls, prop/shaft/zinc and have a thorough cleaning; more than what a diver can give you. It's more of the peace of mind of being able to personally put your eyes on the hull and see what's going on.

Canal boatyard offer a 1 hour haul in slings for $125

Might save you a nasty surpise.

What about drying it out against a wall or scrubbing post for a cheaper option. Looks like you have enough tidal range to do this.

I have seen a Tanzer 22' on a trailer. Easy enough to clean the bottom on a trailer, if you've got one.

Re: Hull Inspection

Give Seaview boat yard a call and see what they charge for a one way haul and pressure wash.

Thanks for all the advice. I called a # of different diving services and the cheapest I could find was $150. I don't know if this is just Pudget Sound pricing or if I'm calling the wrong people.

Thanks for the advice folks. I guess I'll keep trying to find someone cheaper to clean the hull.
I'm in a low rent district, but for $150, I could get a short haul for my 34 footer, and the yard owner would probably let me use his power washer to clean it. Then it's out of the water for a good inspection.

A diver will be able to tell you little of value without first cleaning the hull. Hull cleaning rates vary widely region to region, but unless the bottom is extremely foul, $150 sounds a little steep, even including the video service.

Re: Hull Inspection

The bottom is the part that holds the rest of it up.
kind of important to take a look.

Is it this one?

1974 Tanzer 22' Sailboat

If so offer a grand and take your chances, if the sails and rigging are good.
