It is my understanding that all fiber glass boats absorb water and if left in the water for years ...
I do not believe this to be true, although it is true that leaving a boat in water for years significantly increases the chance that it will develop blistering...but that is not guaranteed to happen.
OR IS IT? I assume many boats without barrier coats live for years in locales like Florida without blistering...but what do I know, I live in new England. Can any Florida posters clarify whether blistering in a year-round-environment is a common exception, or a rule?
Certified...in several regards...
