severe deck crazing repair cost
I'm buying a boat in need of a number of repairs. One of the projects I will be doing is refinishing the severely crazed deck gelcoat. I'm trying to wrap my head around the cost of this project. The crazing appears non-structural (cracks don't emanate from the genny tracks, etc.) and involves only the (formerly) glossy portions of the deck and cockpit, not the non-skid. There are a few deep cracks, which will need to be "Veed" out and filled with epoxy. For the rest, I'm hoping to sand, apply 2 coats of epoxy, then pay the yard to paint it with LPU. By doing much of the prep myself (including removal of deck hardware), I'm hoping to significantly decrease the cost of the job.
Is this pie in the sky, or is my logic sound?
Thanks for the help.
