Default Removing bottom paint

Does anyone have a guess at the cost to have the bottom paint removed from a 34' V and the hull bottom re-polished? (and no, I don't want to do it myself, I just don't have the time to take on such a task, and would rather spend my available time doing something much more pleasant)

Thanks - Greg

try west marine stores. they have a product to remove bottom paint. it's called peel away bottom paint stripper. looking at the catalog it says to apply and let it work for 2-24 hrs.no fumes , 1 gallon costs 60 $ and treats 50 square ft. on page 338 of the 04 catolog.

I took my 242 Formula to a bead blasting shop. They did it for right around $300, however, I recomend that you DON'T do that. It damn near ruined my hull, in some spots it looked like it was shot with number 8 bird shot. I did one myself with a pressure washer and a sandblasting attchement. It came out much smoother than the bead blasting.

Bead blast.
You can see some holes where it shot too big a chunck out or something.

Here's part that I sandblasted myself. I imagine you could just hire a pressure washing guy to do it for you. It took 550 pounds of fine sand to do a 20 foot boat. It came out much nicer than the bead blast.
