I have been reading a lot on most threads on this and other boat fourms but can see no posting
on what I'm looking for...Which is, I'm sure...Something you all love...Painting & Boat maintenance
Is your boat built from steel
, timber, alloy, cement or full glass?
Is your boat a Mono, Cat or Tri?
Is your boat a sail boat, full motor
boat or a motor
What size is your boat?
Now to the guts of my questions. Which is in two parts
(1) How often do you
get your boat on the hard
or beach to scrape her hull/s, antifoul and paint
her and what are the costs involved?
(2) How often and where/how do you
do a topside paint
job, (Decks and such) and what are the costs involved?
Just thought of something else to do with hull/s, when I was a boy my dear old Dad, rest his soul, told me they would take their boats, sea going timber or steel trawler
, up a river into fresh water
. This would kill a lot of marine
groth that grew on the hull
, and the growth would drop-off, there-by reducing the cost and time by extending the length of time, between having the boat on the hard
to do a full bottom job.
Was that an old fishermans tale?
Thanks in advance for letting me know of your
experiences in the maintenance
