Need to find someone who can paint the exterior of the hull of this 16' wooden boat: http://www.thebayguide.com/rec.boats/skopje179.html
I'm in the process of repairing the keel, and once the work is done, I want to take her to someone to paint.
Dad had Rand Spais (Welaka, FL) paint her about 10 years ago. Rand used Emron, so whomever I use, needs to know what to do with the old Emron (sand and paint over, or strip and start over again).
Found one outfit in So. Central PA that wants about $250 a foot (or approx $4k) to do this boat. Since I'm not in the habit of having boats painted, I'm not sure if this is in the ballpark or not.
Anyone know of other reputable boatworks outfits in the Annapolis, MD area whom they would trust to paint their family hierloom? As long as they are withing a 2-3 hour driving distance (including Eastern Shore), I'd consider them in my area.
Anything I can do myself to reduce the prep time and costs to the painter? Since it is Emron, should I strip it, or just sand it?
