Well that didn't take long. I sold my big trimaran
and she will now carry 60 tourists per day trip in Langkawi.
New vessel is same same but different. Specifically she is a plank hull
with seams that are opening up. She is still dry inside but I know this is something that should not be ignored.
I am searching for cruisers who have hauled out in Kudat and Philippines
Have you seen laborers with experience removing old seaming materials and pounding in fresh cotton and seaming compound. Which haul out
areas would you suggest? I saw fishing
vessels in Phuket being repaired in this manner.
There seems to be about six traditional seaming compounds as well as InterLux
Seaming Compound. Ideas?
Again this is a plank vessel not plywood
I am not seriously consider converting to glass over the planks since I question local ability to do anything but a hack job.
