Default market check - appx price for heavy compound / wax in south florida

Hi all - want to check quickly, what is the going rate for a heavy compound / wax for the hull-sides of a center console? Just need an approximate number. Oxidized yes but doesn't need wet sand. Any guidance is appreciated, looking for a $ / foot metric.

Thanks

What is the boat? A bay boat and a big deep v are going to be different rates

$15 is a great price, I paid around $1000 to have a 38 with heavy oxidation compounded and waxed, and interior of the boat cleaned (interior was probably $250-$300 of that)

I even offer ceramic coating at a discounted price on top of that 😳

Disclaimer: if the gelcoat is extremely oxidized it may be higher

Thanks guys. Its a normal 25 foot cc, a Dusky - not a bayboat. Last question - does $15/ft include materials? Just waterline to rubrail.

Thatís just my price of course but it does include material unless otherwise stated. If I see it requires more product than usual I may charge $20-30 extra.

You ever come down to the lower keys? I have a 26' sailfish that'll need it's annual wax job in March. I tried to pm you but couldn't do it, thanks.
