Summer 2010 I was here a lot asking for advice and probably some of you remember. After a long yourney I found my boat and it seemed to be in an extremely good condition. How the can eyes can be fooled!
Under this link I have placed a range of galleries about the boat.
Index of /01Images/Sweden-Sailing-Boats/2010/Koster-project-web
01-The-Boat/ = about the boat
02-Hull/ = the hull
, which seems to be OK, even after checking and knocking on the entire hull
The boat was all it's live on the Swedish west coats in salt
. I took it half august 2010 to the Swedish east Coast
, which is a lot less salty. (Baltic sea) and took it out of the water
in october 2010 before the winter.
When i took it out of the water, we presure washed the hull and a little chip broke out of the hull.
This spring I decided to inspect the wood around that area and to my horror to find out that I have wood rot
in the boat hull.
How is it possible to get wood rot
in a mahogany hull, which was all it's live in salty sea water?
see here this gallery;
For me a big mystery.
last year many forum members adviced my to lower the keel
and to inspect the keel
It's now going to be not only inspecting the keel bots but all wood as well.
Hope I cam afford this fun.
Definitely not I was hoping for.
Any feedback welcome
