    painting formula 357 (how much)


    I'm looking at a formula 357... love the boat, just don't like the exterior scheme. (The three "formula stripes") It has some pink, aqua, and black-- the rest of the boat is white.
    If I wanted to make the boat completely white, would they have to sand and repaint the whole thing? Could they just take off the stripes and paint in that area? Do any of you have an idea of how much this will cost?
    The work would be done in the racine, wi area (milwaukee, chicago)....

    Also, if you had any reccommendations for who to call, it would be appreciated...

    Formula leaves the white Gel, meaning the whole boat is not painted.

    To paint the boat all white, you'll have to sand the whole boat and paint, this will be costly. The other option is to sand the imron off, then re-polish the gel below it to be all shiny again (many coats of sanding/wet sanding/polishing). The boat is white under there... I know a few that have done that.

    you may use vynil to make a new paint scheme with different colors... not the best but cheap and fast solution...

    I'd like to know as well. How much to just paint the top deck all white on a 28?
