The one thing that scares the crap out of me about owning a boat is all of the FUD about blisters. Here are some good links concerning research on the problem:

The main point I took away from this is that you need to keep your bilge dry.

I skimmed through this and may have misunderstood, but my impression is that blistering is more of a problem is warmer waters.

Question: Is a boat that spent its life in Northern California and northward less prone to blistering?
