Thread: Labor time

  1. #1

    Default Labor time

    We have a 1985 Baja 250 with a 5.7l 260 h.p. engine that has stripped the coupler when he ran ashore. I do not know what to charge for labor and since this is an insurance job, the adjuster will want prices and I do not want to cut myself short nor do I want to come in to high. Thanks for your time.

    Ayuh,... It's All about how much of the Boat has to be removed, just to get To the motor....
    That's why there's no labor manuals for Boats,... They're All Different....

    I can have a motor settin' on the floor in a half hour,... My boat, My shop...
    Any Grease is Better,..... Than No Grease at All.......

    I don't mean any disrespect here...

    But if you need to ask on an internet forum for labor times on this job. This tells me you have never done this type of job before. If you've never done this type of job before + can not estimate your own time based on your tools, equipment and ability. Then your probably not qualified to do the work in the first place.

    I know the money looks peachy to you, but your probably better off passing on it because it's only going to come back and bite you in the *** latter.
    just because you found it that way... doesn't mean it's supposed to be that way.

    Part of diagnostics is spending time figuring out not only what the problem is, but also sorting through what it isn't.

    The older the engine is, the chances of it having more than 1 problem goes up exponentially

    Boating has always been a rich mans hobby. Buying a new boat gets cheaper every year, but the maintenance, the repairs, and the overall cost of ownership of a boat has never gotten any cheaper.
