Re: Two month Barnacle Growth PNW

I painted my boat mid february two yrs ago, temps around 28F-40 or so. Painted last week in the same temps, launched yesterday.......

If you are already out, you could wrap the boat in a plastic tent, rent an lp/butane style heater, heat the area up into the 50-60F range, paint then launch. That might be cheaper than launching now, re hauling in 2 months etc.

Options is all I am giving......I'm the odd ball on the answers, but you see my answer and what I have done etc. There are 2-5 other boats sanding, painting etc in the tent manner I described at my marina north of seattle. unlike me...........


She drives me boat,
I drives me dinghy!
