Because of some stupid work done on my boat, before I bought it, the deck by the mast foot was showing quite deep cracks. I had them repaired and the mast base extended a little and levelled out, so that the mast foot (which is a custom metal job to allow the mast to be lowered) would be level. All the work seems to be ok, but I am now being confronted with a ridiculous bill. I would like to know how much time it would take to do this layup, fair it and paint it? I reckon laying up to be a few hours at most, followed by another few hours to finish, say a full 8 hours max? But I have no real experience in this at all. What would you say?
Thanks a lot for your help!
