Topic Review (Newest First)

bestfriend Received his initial estimate from the boat yard. Says, seal damaged area until next haul-out. Grind, glass and gelcoat transom corner. Thats it. Both of the guys I have coming say it sounds like too much, but we will see. They are independents. His estimate was from a yard, always higher. If somebody hit my boat, and was dumb enough to admit it, I would want it fixed right.

hellosailor I would expect this breaks down to:
One haul
Plus fiberglass work
Plus repainting the entire transom (rather than trying to blend)
Plus repainting the name on the transom
Plus trying not to work on the gray side of the hull.

On a car, at high urban prices, a $400 repair like redoing a quarter panel. Plus the price of the haul.

Even adding a boatyard penalty surcharge...$1300 sounds high. My only question is will your $300-400 yard guarantee to make the repair *invisible* or will they simply "try to match it" when they feather in the paint? Some shops are real good at that, others just don't even try. (Be glad they aren't planning the entire hull side with it!)

sailortjk1 I thought it was as follows.........
Captain: "I said I wanted a rum and coke on the rocks, not, run the boat on the rocks!"

bestfriend I think he used the quote thing by mistake, so it looks like he is commenting on you, but, I think he was referring to the overall situation.
