I was just quote $300 at a place called blast off in orlando ( yes i know far away) , and I just called a place today that does a pressure washer abrasive type deal that claims no warping and he quoted me $500. Mine is fiberglass though.

Blast off did my rigging and i was really pleased with his work (very reasonable priced). If you end up coming to orlando, place called powdertec (just west of DT) did my all powder coating for $400.

if your hull is fiberglass, you may want to rethink sandblasting. unless you are handy with finishing glass, you will have a mess.

Was meant for glass hull.

Chemical strip it, and hand finish to bare metal.
I have ruined a few things sandblasting them in my days.
