Response to "Do you paint the bottom?"
I saill in Lake Michigan out of Chicago, from Monroe Harbor. We are moored on a can and go out at least twice a week during the sailing season. Since the boat is in fresh water, on a can and not a pier, and is used often - the boat never builds up more than a slight growth after 5 - 6 months. I have never painted the bottom since I have owned it - about six (6) seasons. If I ever got interested in racing I might swim around it and clean the bottom. On second thought probably not...
