Last Fall on my last cruise
of the season I was motoring into Gosport Harbour at the Isle of Shoals to pick up a mooring
and slowly nudged a rock submerged about 5 feet with my 5'6" keel
. I backed away and knew I had a ding but saw no further damage when we pulled out.
Now I'm preparing to launch and have exposed lead to deal with. Do I need to treat/seal/cover with anything prior to painting with the usual bottom paint
