Boler Painting Recommendations in Vancouver, Canada

Hello all,

We are looking for quotes on a professional paint job for our 13 ft. Boler. Does anyone have a recommendation. I had posted something last year where there was a response referencing someone near us that does Boler work but I cannot locate this thread and not sure if this site keeps all old threads.

Thanks for your time.
Stella

Have you checked the Boler.ca group on Facebook? I just did a search and found the following recommendations in the Lower Mainland:
- Tom's Auto Body in Maple Ridge
- Darren Emmerson 360 Fabrication in Abbotsford
- Jim Alward in Surrey - (778) 858-3202 / marinerefinishing@gmail.com

I had priced it out for mine a while back and with the fibreglass repair and prep it was going to be about $6000 so I decided to do it myself :-)

In my area, its similar to getting a car painted, except it uses a lot more paint. $5,000 to $7,500 here. And to do it right, all windows, hatches and vents should be removed first, then reinstalled properly afterwards.

From what I have seen, car places don’t understand window installation.

Repainted our triple E for 2k

We found a guy on the Sunshine Coast who did it for 2k. Sanded, primed and painted in his shop. Took about a month. All in all happy with the work, itís not perfect but the price was.

Smile Painting a 13 ft boler

Hello all,

I have found a company in Surrey B.C. that just finished painting out Boler. We did the prep work which they will explain how....grit etc.. It took us approximately 12 hours each two people but we did have fiberglass work to complete. With a palm sander it isn't difficult just time. Cost of paint job was $3000. The company is Corvette Specialties. It was difficult to find anyone willing to do the work. No boat repair companies etc.. I had one quote of $9000 if I did the prep work so we were happy to find this company. I told them I was going to post this so be prepared for trailer owners reaching out.

We have only one place with bay big enough to take our boler in and have it gelcoat sprayed in our area. Just prior to start of pandemic was quoted $4000 if i did the prep work prior to paint job. Or we could go with self spray $280 gallon pre-waxed, thinned to spray, pre-colour mixed to match original colour min size 1 gallon cans, plus spray equipment.
