Nice looking boat but what are those things hanging off the back? They spoil it completely.

Whatever your estimate is, double it, triple it even by the time the job is finished. Also understand that there is a very high risk of being sick of the sight of it by the time you are finished.

Got hundreds of them in a 22 year old CC windshield. Tried all kinds of things. Most make it look better but nothing removes them. They seem to be more than surface cracks.

Sig boat can carry 260 gal. Burn average is about 3.5gph. Well over 300 mile range being conservative. Sure is nice not having to deal with the fuel dock lines & idiots every time the boat gets used.
