Blisters on Dart 18 Foot Catamaran
I visited a friend in Florida this past weekend and had the opprotunity to sail on his 18 foot Dart catamaran. It sailed great and we had a blast.
Before going out, however, I noticed that the hull, including topsides and deck, was blistered. This surprised me. I always thought that blisters occur because of osmosis. This boat is stored on a trailer under his deck. It has good ventilation, the deck is 12 feet up, and is not in direct sunlight. The boat is about 20 years old and otherwise in good condition.
Any thoughts about why and how this happened?
