Question... (partially playing devil's advocate, mostly cause I just don't know cause I am too new to boats)
So I had some oxidation on my boat when I bought it. This spring I bought an oxidation remover and gel coat polish (products from Leverage), a variable speed buffer/polisher, terry clothe towels, etc. Probably spent $150 on everything.
It took about 5-6 hours to use the oxidation remover, and about 1-2 to apply the polish. The results were honestly pretty damn good, especially for someone that has never done this type of detailing before.
Also I wasn't considering paying for this, but I had seen some ads locally for people that do this work for about $10 - $12 a foot. So my boat would have cost me about $200 - $250 to get done.
What does it really cost to paint a boat my size if I wanted to? What's the cost difference between what I did over a couple evenings and the cost of a full bore paint job?
And it's not that I was even considering this for this boat, more that I am curious for future boats I may be interested in.
