we just purchased a lovely little harbor 53' that has been stored indoors since the fall/winter of 2007/2008 at Hinckley. After the boat was taken out of the water
and decommissioned, it was sanded and painted using the awlgrip HS gold label anti-fouling
product by Hinckley's service
department. A perfect job looking at the bottom as it still sits indoors.
as we get ready to launch her, Hinckely is suggesting a fresh coat of paint
. Seeing the boat has NEVER been in the water
or outdoors since it was painted, what are folks thought on this? does the effectiveness of the anti-fouling paint
deteriorate just by being exposed to the air over the last 6-7 years?? i'd say this would make a great science project
but maybe id be more into it if it wasn't my boat. hehe.
Love the input. we have lots of other items we are looking to update so doing things that are not necessary for the sake of doing them if something we would like to avoid!
