A few qualifing questions if you don't mind. Is it a poly replacement or first time ever on boat? Fiberglass or aluminum hull? Do you already have the new poly? Is the rigging in the hull or removed? This may aid you finding an installer. One good thing is it has been hot outside, always makes a better install.

Have you considered saving some $$ and DIY. It is not that hard to do and there is plenty of instruction on here to help you through it.

I am thinking about putting polymer on the bottom of my boat build (by a company in florida). Will this help me if I run on rocks or stumps on occasion? Does it take away from performance in a big way? Is this the way to go?
