The Hull

Anyone got any idea how much it would cost to have the hull refurbished to a nice shiny finish

Mike at Whitham Glass Fibre will do this. Cost depends on amount of filling cutting back etc but for a proper job you are looking at 2-400 I would think.

Its a bit of a messy job for me mate i will tackle most jobs on the boat but this job i'm not sure of i'm not in no rush just wondered what kind of money they charge for doing the hull might be a job for next winter

I agree, I hate polishing. If you can lift the boat off the trailer and work from underneath its not too bad and this is what Mike does. Still a PITA job I would happily pay to have done !

If you're going to paint it and the hull condition is fairly good then putting it on blocks and doing it would be ok but as mentioned a PITA!
If you wanted to re-gel it without turning it over I wouldn't even consider it as it's such an awkward position to work in to donthe flatting and polishing.
