Hi Jane,

If you want a job that you can afford that is done with the best materials and great graphic design, we can do it and we are in Glens Falls, hell maybe an hour and a half from you.

Our latest job is on our web site.
http://www.critical-lift.com

Graphics can be worked out to your liking. If interested i'll supply email addresses.

I would get in touch with Mac Hadden AKA Mack The knife, He has a Rod and custom graphic shop just south of Lake George. He is very well known in the area. They do phenomenal work. His 21 Skater was a featured article for a few months in Family & Performance Boating Mag. Its absolutely gorgeous. If you have a chance, stop by his shop and take a look at the work he has done in the past. You wont be disappointed. Sorry but I dont have his # handy

Mack the Knife is absolutely dynamite, but i think it will be expensive. His number is 518 798-0872. Good luck.

Paint and preperation are most of the work and cost. We have and in house artist if you need some drawings done. And we can lead you in the right direction as far as finding a painter. We are having 4 boats painted in 2 weeks here in Cincinnati.

Jane: Not to sound like I am putting you down, I am not, but you were sounding shaky on your driving skills. Personally I would hate to see you spend a lot of money having your nice graffics done then ruin them with a bad docking or something like that. I would drive the boat for a year till you gain confidence then go for it. There is nothing worse looking on a boat then scratches in the paint. I know my boat has lots of them from the former owner. I hope to repaint this spring Just something to consider.

This maybe a dumb question, and I know it depends on the graphics, but what does it cost to paint a boat.

How much would it cost to paint a 26 ft. deep v gelcoated boat all white. Including the bottom. Now don't laught too hard, but in my mind something like that should cost around 2500-3000 bucks. Am I close, or do I need to look at buying some of my own spray equipment.

Grafic EFX and Kangaroo (the 2 who started all this wild stuff) get anywhere from $15k to $30k to do some of the nice jobs you see out there!
