What is required for bottom maintainence?
Bill, If all you get is a thin layer of algae growth during the season there really is no reasson to paint the bottom just to keep that growth off, it is expensive and toxic. As you have probally observed most of the growth comes off each time you go for a sail. There really is no need to introduce a biocide into a closed freshwater enviornment. You can pull the boat out on the trailer for a washdown if necessay. This supposes that you do not race and can live with a slight speed loss. Fair winds
