I re-built a couple of old Sealines some years ago. They are almost identical in design to a Penn Senator so the drags are pretty easy to service. If I remember correctly they had the old school felt...

In the fall of 2017 I had my 35' boat media blasted and that was $1,300. The following spring I did the barrier coat and paint myself and the materials were about $1,000.
