I've never heard anyone that has had it done complain, they always say they notice a huge difference in handling and some speed.

It comes down to time spent on the job.If your bottom has alot of issues[rocker or hooks] it will be expensive.If it is straight it will be inexpensive.

Jeff, it depends on how bad the hull is out. For pleasure boating you not noticed anything if the hull is new and already pretty straight. It's time consuming with a lot of sanding and possible re-gelcoating.
It all depends on what needs done, the whole hull, the back half, maybe just the last 4 feet or so and sharpen the strakes and transom edge.
What boat do you have that needs this done?

No hull in mind, just trying to learn and see if it was feasable and what was involved. Didnt know if it was a big procedure, how it was done on or off trailer and so on. Thanks Jeff
