We are in the Azores on the hard
while our prop, prop shaft and coupling are machined and repaired. We will be hauled out several weeks awaiting parts
I was told once by a yard in New Orleans
that bottom paint
had a reduced life when out of the water
. In particular, he said our Pacifica paint
was only good for 28 days when hauled out, then it would need to be recoated.
Our bottom paint
is 7 months old and in great shape. I have checked Interluxe's website but can find no mention of this.
Anybody ever heard of an issue with your bottom paint
suffering when hauled out?
