Turned out great, but was a lot of work. Just kept reminding myself I was saving around $40,000 - our topside has a lot of territory. Was in a covered slip with no boats on either side.
Yup I can appreciate the wanting to save money part. It's like I mentioned at the beginning, the weather up here can be cantankerous to deal with, otherwise I would attempt it. My finishing skills are not the best but I would attempt it.
$45000 is a lot of money. Serenity now

After all the work of setting things up like financing and where to have it painted, it turns out our boat is just to tall to move and no boat mover here on the island will touch it. Lesson learned, before you do anything check to see if it can be moved first. But I will give a final mention to Tyler and his crew at North Island Fiberglass in Courtenay. Seems like a really good guy, just in case any of you are looking to have something painted here on Vancouver Island, their rates are very good compared to boatyard rates.

The best job and most competitive price you will bet on an Alexseal paint job is with Valet Yacht services at Shelter Island. They spray onlt and prep work is meticulous.
