Well worth the work and I would guess to have someone do it will for sure be over a $1000 more like 13 or 1400 dollars for that size boat.
Headhunter is right. Someone who does a quality job will charge at least $1000.
Gordie Miller removes all the old carpet AND old glue.
He glues every square inch of carpet and uses about a million clamps/ boards.
Very meticulous in his work.
You'll want to get your boat in to whoever does it while in the dead of winter.
Once the boating season nears, boat shops are too busy to do a carpet job.
Hourly pay only works out to be about $15.00 per hour so they'll do it in the winter when they don't have boat repairs, winterization, readying boats for spring type work to do. Busy work to bring in some income.
Once March comes, forget it.
