Anybody got any experience or thoughts on the outcome of moving my 45 year old mahogany cold moulded sailing boat to the carribean,
It is UK built and been acustomed to the cold and not so warm weather
of both the Uk and Eu.
So what if any impact will the humidity and weather
bestow onto the hull
Ive been informed previously that cold weather and conditions preserves the deterioration of timber boats. The boat is painted and maintained etc
Also is it common of wood worm and other bugs getting access to the hull
The hull as of last year was coated with wests epoxy
and then epoxy
primer and then 2 pack paint
So there is plent of cover on the hull.
The only weak spot under the water
line is where the keel
joins the hull and there is always a crack along the join from the flexing of the boat. This i cannot seem to fix except for sikoflexing the seam.
