A. Every boat transport is different and many different price factors need to be considered. The Highway part of

fuel tax and heavy road use tax that usually amounts to $2 to $3 per empty mile.

A. Never have we seen 2 boat bottoms that are the same. An average price to use is $50. Per ft. plus paint fill and
paint materials. Epoxy fairing is $130.00 per mixed half 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”.
