Any recommendations for a boatyard to repaint my hull (topsides & bottom paint) in the Seattle /San Juan Islands?

Thanks

Csr in Seattle is well thought of. As is Seaview.
Pettit in olympia.
Sea Marine in Port Townsend.

There are others if you want a paint job. If you want a remove all, add epoxy sprayed, faired etc to race. One place, CSR in Seatle. DesMoines branch may do ok, but the mgr has said he will send the high tech stuff up north.

CSR in Seattle is indeed well thought of... Seaview, not so much. See this recent Facebook thread (which poses a similar question; you might find some useful answers in the comments about local yards) for the general sentiment.

As one commenter put it, "If our boat was sinking right in front of their Travel-Lift, I'd still have to think long and hard about it before hauling out at Seaview."

Having had similarly terrible experiences with them, I couldn't put it better myself!

When it comes to painting I've always done it myself so can't say particularly who is best at that. In terms of general yard practices and service, I would second CSR in Seattle and Sea Marine in PT, both of which I've had good luck with on other sorts of jobs.

I would agree CSR is probably a better place to be at than Seaview. There is a place here in Edmonds where I am too. Seems to do pretty good work from what some others local have said.......the painting requirements are a real PITA though.
