Osmosis, anti-fouling & hull maintenance war stories. Protect your investment: shortcuts, paint options & warning signs
David shares examples of shortsighted shortcuts boat owners and tradesmen take and the extra problems they cause. We talk about the product choices for owners when it comes to anti-foul paint and the differences between budget and premium and how the life expectancies differ, the paint that’s better suited to warm and cold climates and racing versus cruising application options. We discuss some of the ugly things that can happen to poorly maintained hulls and the construction materials to avoid when buying a second-hand yacht. We finish up on rudders and keels and the warning signs you should pay attention to.
