Tom I may have bad news for you

Here in Hawaii the lay days will kill you.
1.) They charge on over all length W32 = 39 ft+/-
2.) They are running from 78.00/day to 82.00/ day
so if you do it your self you have less than one month to do it. pluss you will pay more for materials here.

The haul and launch is not so bad 583 +/- but on a blister repair job drying time is a big plusssssssss.

So if she has been out for a couple of months why not have it done in Mexico (the price is right if you are getting a good job?) and they are stripping the btm complete. + take a look at my skate fin write up in the spring windblown , and Dave Kings write up on fairing the rudder in the Members area. If all done at the same time may not add much to the cost.

In any case the lay at the airport is much cheaper than the lay days in the yard here in wonderful Hawaii.

W32 #564

Lastly if you are going to just sail over why bother with the bottom paint at all, it will save you sanding.
