Bottom Paint Restrictions - Lake Galena, PA?
I picked up an Albacore back in the fall, and will start restoring it in the next few weeks, assuming the weather breaks. The plan is to keep this boat in Peace Valley Park on Lake Galena in Chalfont, PA. I'm torn between their wet and dry mooring options. Basically, the wet option is a mooring ball a few feet out, while the dry mooring is a tether in the ground on the beach. I'll preface my question by saying that I know even less about freshwater boat maintenance than I do about saltwater boat maintenance. If the boat is "dry moored" (i.e., beached) do I still need bottom paint? It makes sense that I'd need it if the boat was always in the water, but I wasn't sure about this case.
Assuming I need bottom paint, does anyone know if Bucks County has restrictions on the paint types that are used? Even a pointer on where to go to get the information would be helpful. Doing a search on the subject gets a LOT of false-positive hits.
