Bottom Paint above the Waterline?
Hello, all you Brainiacs and Engineers! The only place on my Morgan 35 that grows stuff, weed, barnacles. is the water line. And, anywhere paint has worn off, bottom of keel, attachment points of the skegged rudder. I have Trinidad SR on the bottom, scant growth for 4 yrs that I have owned the boat. Don't know if it's the PTFE kind or the Irgarol. I have a friend that just had his boat painted and had the bottom paint extended above the waterline, about 4 inches. Seems like a good idea...Now he's not a lifer like you guys. What do you think? Will it stand up to being out of the water? It looks fine, I mean, not having a traditional strip of one or two colors, on the water line. So, let's hear Ya'. Thanks for your opinions. Kevin
