castiron on 2004 beneteau 42
I had her bottom painted at time of purchase in 2007, 3 months later diver said there were signs of oxidation. figured Id let it slide for a while and see how it went. I was planning on an expensive barrier coating and refairing but the manager of a busy yard here in san diego says thats typical. He said normal repaint 2-3 years and the standard price would include rust spot removal and minor refairing. I hope I am not being too lax about this.
