Refit: East vs West coast?

Greetings all,

I have a somewhat unique circumstance and set of questions. Without getting into much detail, I will be purchasing a specific trawler that is currently located in the Carolina area that I will be relocating to the west coast (PNW/WA state). Suffice it to say that this specific trawler is chosen for sentimental reasons and this won't change.

The trawler has a pilothouse needs removed to more economically trailer it.
At the same time, I would like to do some refit work below deck (in addition to changing the pilothouse a bit). The question at hand here is if there is a great difference in refit work cost in Washington state vs the southeastern coast.

I appreciate that there are a million "it depends" kind of angles to answer this question, but generally speaking is refit work less expensive/lower quality in one region vs the other?

Many thanks for any opinions. More details to follow.
