Just had my boat done in August in Stuart, FL. 2 coats of West Marine PCA Ablative, new zincs, tapped out a very small prop ding, installed an exterior strainer over the Genset intake, primed and hard coated the props. $2,000.

Bottom job costs

Sorry. I think I confused some along with marketing changing the names over the years. I think the slang term is "Ultra Bio". Basically, it is Interlux Ultra paint with Biocide.



Interlux Ultra With Biolux Antifouling Bottom Paint

I had the bottom blasted, barrier coated with Interlux 2000 and then had 2 coats of the Ultra bio paint. I switched from Bottomcoat NT a ablative to the ultra and hope to get 3 to 5 years instead of the 2 years with the ablative paint. Total cost was $6200.00 which included some repairs to the hull and new anodes.

My last two haulouts have been combined with other work, such that it is not possible to dissect the antifoul aspect. If I get 18 months here I`m happy. Also I supply the paint (Jotun Seaguardian).
For Sydney boaters, a compliment to Balmain Marina, who held the boat out of the water on the cradle (which is how many older yards haul here) with no charge, for an extra day, in adverse relaunch wind conditions. Maybe they could not have hauled another boat either, but it seemed right and fair.

I am basing that on my 35 foot boat. He was doing other work on it and I asked him to do the bottom while he had it out. He blurted out $1600. And then I pointed out we had it hauled and blocked already. And then he came up with $1200. I divided those numbers by 35 to get my numbers above. He uses Micron Ultra Bio for those numbers. That is very decent paint. You might get him to use cheaper paint for a cheaper price but I have been using that stuff for 15 years and I get a SOLID 5 years out of it. I do use my boat a lot so that probably helps. Anyway, OJ ain't no dummy and he is been around a LONG time. Your boat draws a solid 5 feet...mine a smidge over 3 feet. That draft(and your beam) increases paint use significantly. He might hit you for a little more because of it. He contracts thru the yard. He is paying for daily fees. The sooner he gets the boat out, the more money he makes. So he will not have your boat for long....3 days maybe.

You can shop around at Clear Lake Marine and likely find cheaper. But you are dealing with less reliable people and they will use cheap paint. I would not go away from Micron Ultra Bio. The stuff works very well around here.
Jim, Actually I ended up going with OJ based on his reputation and experience, I'm sure I could have price shopped the job but would prefer to use someone with his credentials. I took Hattini over there yesterday (1/18) and hope to get her back in the water by Friday. I am having the props cleaned up, balanced etc by Mike Hood so I hope there are no delays in that. Here are a couple of pictures out of the water....

Very good choice with OJ and Mike Hood. There are no better in the business. And don't let OJ's demeanor freak you out...he is a teddy bear deep down...
