Default boat painting

hi, i'm thinking about buying this boat i found on craigslist for a really good deal... the only problem is that the guy decided to paint the exterior of the boat himself and it looks like he used a brush.

how much do you think it would be to have the exterior repainted?

btw its a 20' thompson cuddy cabin

thanks,
Brandon

you can probably get someone to spray the boat for a couple hundred bucks.

dude dont use auto paint on a power boat.. well ok you can but you better use a damn good clear like imron 500S, or awl grip clear. depending on if the boat has bottom paint or not will reflect on the price of the paint job. if you only need from water line to rub rail painted, betting you can find a body shop who is light on work to sand and paint it for $800-1000ish.. if a boat like that came into my shop its roughly $125 a foot for a two color paint job in awl grip, and that finish is deeper then any auto paint and way tougher.... would not ever ever ever recommend re-gelling an entire boat its a waste of time and money!!!!!
