Jeanneau blue paint problems
 
Has anyone had any blue hull paint problems?
I have a Jeanneau 49DS new 2006 with a blue hull. But the paint has 'fender' rubbed off within 18 months!

Gel Coat?
 
Was the hull gel coat molded in blue from the factory or was a white hull painted blue?

Boy, that;'s a lousy situation. Do you leave your boat in a slip? If so you should have cloth boots on your fenders to limit abrasions on the hull. If you don't, I'm not too sure this situation qualifies as a Jeanneau problem.

The hull was painted at the factory.

Uh yea! I have had blue boats before and I really do know how to look after them! I was just enquiring if anyone had a similar problem with this particular model.

Well known problem with any dark painted hull. Technical term is "fender rash". NOT a boat BRAND issue...a paint issue.
