Paint

I need to get my boat painted but have no idea on what the ball park should be. Any ideas for re painting a 21' center console? I've gotten wildly different estimates and I really have no clue.

    You really need to be more specific.
    Is it:
    Painting the hullsides (chine to rubrail)?
    Painting the entire hull (bottom as well)?
    Painting the hull, and cap?
    Painting the hull, cap, new nonskid & console?

    There will, obviously, be variances in the price quotes to the tune of thousands. It's a heck of a lot more work to do the cap/ nonskid than to just paint the hullsides.

    Hey Thaveteran, welcome to the forum.

    BL is tha man when it comes to paint.

    He is who, I go to with paint questions, and I ask a lot of dumb paint questions.:grin

    Let us know what your looking for in the finished job.

    Its not rocket science, more product, more prep, more money.

    The quality of the work, will account for some of the discrepancies.

    an old adage, a paint job is 95% prep work 5% paint
