Re: Blisters, OMG

The entire concept of racing sailboats eludes me so whatever a racer thinks makes his boat go faster is fine with me. However, for us cruisers, even with blisters the size of watermelons I think my boat could be made to sail better than I am able to sail her so I don't worry about many small ones affecting her cruising performance.
My boat is very old and looks like crap but works great. OK, I have very low standards of comfort and my entire reason for going sailing is cuz I like to solve unexpected problems but I've managed to cruise a lot with a poxed boat.
So yer boat has blisters. Slap a coat of bottom paint on, shrug your shoulders and put her back in the water where you can't see em, problem solved.
