Does anyone know how much it cost to get a new gel coat on a boat? boat is 26 feet
If I remember correctly, a buddy recently had a new gel coat put on his 18.5' boat and it cost him roughly $350.
It was a far lower than expected price...
Also, if there is a soft spot in the fiberglass - how hard is it to get that fixed ($ range)?
Could be a lot of different things...all of which could be fairly expensive.
Remove the flooring, replace the support beams/stringers...maybe more.
Depending on the age of the boat...I wouldn't be surprised if the repairs cost more than the value of the boat.
I always worry about soft spots because it usually means there is some type of rot/break in the structural support of the boat.
However, I'm by no means an expert (especially w/o seeing the problem areas) and it is certainly worth getting a few professional quotes.
Best of luck
