My boat got damaged last year (Hull got dinged up) so I had a yard handle the paint job from start to finish because it was an insurance situation. Was approx. 15k. But if you do all your own prep work, I am guessing it would be much less expensive. Awlgrip is expensive but the labor is in the prep work.If your boat is coast guard documented you also have to have the home port on the transom. I also did vinyl lettering and changed colors when we repainted the boot stripe. I am interested in how you went about repainting the boat as the wife wants a blue one. Right now she has to settle for the blue boot stripe.
