Bottom jobs for both my boats (33' power and 36' full keel sail) came to about $400. Each boat takes a bit over an hour. It is not hard or even messy work. Cost is for three gallons of Sea Hark Monterrey ablative water based bottom paint, two roller covers and masking tape. Haul and pressure wash are not included because both boats are hauled for winter storage and pressure wash is included in the storage fee. I bottom paint annually. Zincs cost an additional $35 or so.

On our current boat the bottom paint is blue and I want to paint it black. The yard where we bought it said it was painted in 2014 with 2 year paint. We bought it in 2015 so I figured we would paint it in 16. However it is still good so we are going to wait until the paint is gone or stops working. On a previous boat we had the bottom soda blasted to gel coat. Then the yard brought it down to our house and blocked it up on the driveway. We finished up doing the last bit of sanding needed. Then we put 6 coats of Interprotect on it followed by 2 coats of bottom paint with a 3 around the waterline. It was nice being on concrete so I could roll around on a creeper. We did each coat and then recoated when it was thumbprint dry. It took about 5 days plus about 5 more days for painting under the blocking since some days we put a coat on early and then another coat on late in the day. Total cost was $35 per foot for the soda blasting and the cost for the paint and supplies. The yard didnít charge for moving the boat to our house and then moving the blocking so we could paint under the blocking, nice living in a small town. It wasnít too bad since the soda blasting did all the hard work. It was a 32í boat and would take about an hour to roll on a coat.

Haul and sit on the hard for a month was $600.
2 gallons of Petit Trinidad SR ( for BY use only) was $375 per gallon.
Sean Labor $60 per hour plus tip. Light sand, coat the bare spots, sides, transom, and one complete coat.

Decision was to accomplish DIY. Had some other things pop up so the weather window for outdoor painting may be lost until the Spring. Certainly not going to be held hostage at $125 a ft.

I really wonder why the OP needs bottom paint on an interior fresh water lake? My surveyor said that if I did not want to lock thru to salt water then no bottom paint is needed for a strictly fresh water boat. Just passing that along.

All the boats here are bottom painted. Your surveyor is wrong.

Not sure about Michigan, but it is not uncommon for strictly lake boats here to not be bottom painted. They get an easy to brush off slim, but no barnacles. Do the Great Lakes boats grow barnacles or something else that requires bottom paint?

Probably big issue is barrier coat. I assume freshwater boats can still get blisters.

River Forest runs a special for $50/ft.

He did it for $44 on my 36.

Work was so nice I did not want to get it wet. Killer yard.

You could put it on a big trailer and just pull it out and paint it near a ramp. But near Austin the tree huggers will get you.

I think the local DIY yards are really strict about any sanding done on bottom paint. I have heard some require tenting the boat and also using a vacuum attachment. Plus a respirator is needed, of course.

Yes, the big risk with sanding bottom paint is getting it all over your boat. Sean uses a very powerful shop vac with a 25' umbilical. He still wears a tyvek suit and respirator, but the vac seems to get it all. I'm sure mother nature is happy about that as well.

We get grass and muscles here.

No barnacles on the great lakes, but plenty of slime and other crap. Some zebra / quagga mussels too. Basically the only boats I see around here (Lake Ontario) without bottom paint are those that live on trailers. Anything that stays in the water gets paint.
