will appreciate opinions on degree of difficulty of gelcoating and wearability verses painting my 17' whaler.

My bw is a 1967 and any idea what a pro would charge. The hull is in excellent shape except itis very dull inside and out.

Marty, I think before I would entertain the idea of painting or regelcoating I would have to try rubbing compound, wax, etc.
Many a hull has went from old and wore out to like new with a orbital polisher and some care products.
Trying doing a search using "compound" on the Repairs/Mods forum and I think you might save yourself a lot of money and have almost the same results.
As far as cost go for gelcoating. It will depend on how much of the work you want to do. Are you willing to sand or strip the hull etc? I have heard prices from $500.00 to $2500.00
