Re: Newbie looking at buying a sailboat with questions.

I live in Seattle and have the same size boat, most of the above is on the mark. If the hull is in good shape it can be a dyi job. Seaview, and other boat yards, have off season deals now that can save you some $.

Marine (salt water) growth in our area is very vigorous. The issue is not just slime but barnacles and muscles. Proper anti-fouling bottom paint is a must have for any boat in the water.

Re: Newbie looking at buying a sailboat with questions.

If there is no other bottom repairs needed, you just scuff the bottom with a sander, and roll it on. Goes pretty fast. Paint the spots where the stands touch while the boat is on the travelift. You need to make sure the paint you are putting on is compatable with the old paint. You also need to check locally with what kind of paint works for your area. I'm a bit if a DIYster. Can't imagine paying someone to paint the bottom.

BillA98272 Is it a roll on application or does it need to be sprayed? I am new to sailboats, I have a 20 ft power boat and it goes back on the trailer after each use so I do t have experience with bottom paints. Thanks everyone for the info I'm learning....

Re: Newbie looking at buying a sailboat with questions.

Are you doing the work yourself, or will you have someone else paint for you? If you're thinking DIY, does the marina allow that? A gallon of bottom paint is about $130-$200. I haven't done bottom paint yet, so I can't tell you whether you'll need one coat or two. Since she's already out of the water, that makes things a little easier, but you'll want to touch up the areas under the jack stands before she's dropped in the water. Most marinas are pretty good about letting you do that once the boat is on the travel lift.

Not if the boat has soft paint. There is a $10,000 fine for cleaning boat bottoms with abalative paint in WA state.

Re: Newbie looking at buying a sailboat with questions.

you could also just launch and have a diver clean the bottom once a month for around $60 a month. you are in cold water so not much growth per month. gets you in the water for a lot less and then decide when to haul and paint. you may find other reasons to haul after you have it for awhile

Re: Newbie looking at buying a sailboat with questions.

Welcome to CSR Marine | CSR Marine has the pricing schedule for a popular local yard (that I used a couple of months ago). The other boat yards charge about the same. Including hauling, power washing, and two coats of a moderate cost paint I'd expect to pay around $1500. My 29' boat (pretty similar size too) took a little over 1-1/2 gallons to do two coats.

This is an ongoing cost that you'll expect to redo every 2-3 years on salt water (or more often if you use cheaper paint).

About $1200 in S. Calif. area including haul and launch using 2 coats Petit Trinidad with a third at the waterline and leading edges. Many paints require being splashed (launched) within 24 hrs. of application. The paint used can make a large difference in price.

Re: Newbie looking at buying a sailboat with questions.

I think should ask this over in the Boat Review & Purchase sub-forum. Although the question is really about the cost of bottom painting, so maybe it does fit here.
