Ball Park Figure To Weld In A New Well Deck

Featured Posts

So looking for a ball park figure Of what it would cost to have someone weld in a new Well Deck. Either fully sealed round the edges or a sort of suspended platform

The space is about 1.7m x 1.5m

 

My boat which has a wooden top currently has a wooden front door which is connected to a wooden platform over the watertank. This needs replacing as that floor is delaminated severly. As you may or may not know alr3ady the boat was designed so water enters the well deck and drains to the rear where it is pumped out. 

We are currently building a Cratch Cover to stop this but will need the floor redone as said either in wood or in steel so just seeing what the comparison is cost wise

Assume  you do the basic prep- remove old floor, clear out all  crap, remove any serious rust and get it all dry, then  you do the painting afterward.  Take the job to the welder.   Then a good day's work, plus  steel,  a few welding sundries.  A grand ought to do it.  

 

If you want full service, no prep or finish input from you and the welder comes to the job  it looks like more than £2k to me.

 

In London?   It will be a loada money.

 

Martin Kedian of this patch might be worth talking to if you are somewhere near him.

Agree. This is well over half the work!

Difficult for anyone to advise or make a stab at the price without knowing where the boat is or what your skills are!

I think if it's anything North of a Grand then redoing the whole thing in Wood is probably the better option as my boat partner is an established carpenter. And as said with the install of the Cratch Cover Frame he is currently constructing this will stop water ingress. 

 

Thanks for all the replies

With a timber top a timber deck is always going to be easier IMO.  The joint between the vertical cabin face and the edge or zngle  flange of a steel sheet deck would be a PITA.  With an in house chippy it's a no brainer.

Yes I think it is the biggest issue for me was stopping water coming in and under the cabin floor but the addition of a Cratch Cover will stop tjis anyway
