Q. Cost to transport my boat?
A. Every boat transport is different and many different price factors need to be considered. The
Highway part of the process will bid around $3 to $6 per loaded mile, we charge an empty mileage
surcharge for dead head time, fuel tax and heavy road use tax that usually amounts to $1 to $2 per
empty mile.

Q. Cost to haul out my boat?
A. We use our state of the art hydraulic trailers for all of our ramp hauling, boats that are smaller than
25’ in length we charge $8.00 per ft. boats that are larger than 25’ up to 38’ we charge $10.00 per ft.
boats that are larger than 38’ or 20,000 lbs we charge $12.00 per ft. these prices are the same for out
and in.

Q. Are you insured?
A. Yes of course! We carry a 2,000,000 minimum liability and cover vessels in our care up to $350,000
for each occurrence. There have been times where we’ve hauled boats over this value and we will
provide you with the paperwork showing you our approved policy change to cover your boats value
should your boat be valued more than $350,000 to replace before we touch it.

Q. What will it cost to rig my sailboat?
A.  Rigging starts at $10.00 per ft. for boats under 27', boats larger than 27' start around $14.00 per
ft. This includes mast, shrouds and boom with associated lines and halyards. There are extra charges
for sail hoisting and packaging. Rig tuning – (we will set the turnbuckle back to how we took them
apart) - if you need additional rig tuning we charge $250. If a crane is required for you mast stepping
typical crane fees are $150-$175 per hour and most masts can be stepped and un-stepped with less
than 2 hours of crane time, however there are remote areas we service and cranes charge a 3hr

Q. How much will it cost to paint my boat?
A. Never have we seen 2 boat bottoms that are the same. An average price to use is $50. Per ft. plus
paint and paint materials. Epoxy fairing is $130.00 per mixed half gallon, Epoxy barrier coating is
$129.99 per mixed gallon and a middle of the road anti-fouling paint is $175.00 per gallon, your top
of the line anti-fouling paints will run upwards of $250-$280 per gallon. (Example a 30’ sailboat
would be 30’x$50. Plus on average 3.5 gallons of paint on a 30’ sailboat gives you a close “ballpark”.
