My girlfriend and me have bought a Kelly Peterson
44 last August with which we intend to go cruising. She currently sits in Cabrales Boatyard
, where we'll do the refit
from approx. next January on. We're both refit
noobs, so there will be a lot to learn.
We'll most likely have a million questions along the way, so I thought it would sense to just open a thread to post them all instead of spamming the forum.
When the boat
was pressure washed, a big brownish spot around the sink thruhull and the raw water
intake of the engine
appeared, which was not there when surveying the boat
last year. Looks like the (very) old antifouling has been eaten away by sth. Also the SSB
anode that sits in the same spot looks pretty beaten.
Since we're most likely going to peel due to Osmosis
issues, I was looking into youtube and I found a video of someone peeling his hull
with the same issue (well visible in the thumbnail or from 1:44 on).
A shot of our hull
Does anyone have a clue what that could be? We have a couple of theories (years of stuff going down the sink, bad prep work
before anitfouling, stray current
etc.) but I wanted to ask around anyway.
Thanks for any hints!
