Boat estimates??????????

Hello all,

Great site with some great info. I was wondering how everyone bids powerwashing boats? I live close to the water and think this would be a great quick hit. Is an accurate estimate .15 a ft? Please let me know.

Also, is a John Deere 3000 psi, 4 gpm sufficient for strictly residental? Can most houses even supply 4 gpm or should I bring a 55 gallon drum? Any help would be appreciated. OOH RAH!!!

3000 PSI/4.0 Gal. is enough for most jobs.
You can use a 35 Gal. tank with a floating valve to prevent pump starvation when unsure about residential water pressure.

You better not use to much pressure and carry good GL insurance...
