Default Race to Pleasure

Quick question guys. Whats approximate cost of removing the top off a canopy and turning a 3 seater to a 4/5 seater. Realistically and economically. I was ballparking 3,000-4,000 conservatively. I don't see much work to do. Cut off top, seal the cut, add a seat. Thinking that is a naive train of thought though. Dan (fountainicbm) I already know what you think buddy!! 35-38ft cat. Just exploring options.

I think it is because I don't know and would like to know. If you've got a ballpark figure give it up. If not why post all caps sarcasm?

It depends how much u r going to do. Some just cut the hatch larger. (30 AMT) others go much farther. Like Loan Shark 32 DW and Black Pearl 38 Fountain.

I talked to 2 or 3 places about converting a 40' skater to pleasure seating . the prices for someone else to do the job complete including upholstery was 25-30k . To me it just sounded easier to get one that has already been redone . I know a friend who told me he would have done it himself , and I am sure he could .

You're starting to seem like a gnat around here.




OP, I'd say your numbers are pretty low, even if you're doing a lot of the work yourself you might still be low.

Also keep in mind a lot of times the tanks need to be done at the same time. $$$

I you have to pay someone to do everything your $3-4k figure is WAY low!
