1947 6 metre Wood Sailboat
by Fred Schneider
(Shelby twp MI)
I am restoring a 6 meter wood sailboat and have removed the fiberglass skin.
I have sanded down to the mahogany wood.
After caulking I will be painting below the waterline and varnishing above.
There are so many different types of paint.
For the bottom do I start with a wood sealer then apply primer and then apply the antifouling bottom paint?
I assume I would be applying several coats of each and sanding in between.
I appreciate any suggestions.
While the original system
worked quite well as a one-off post, it didn’t allow for updating or
posting new photographs etc.
That is why I have
introduced the new Your Pages.
This is new ‘Community’
platform is for 2018.
It is designed to put you
in control of your content, make it easier to for you to tell us about
your Wooden Boat, upload photos etc. and most of all post updates as
and when you wish to.
There is also a forum where
you can ask any questions you may have about Wooden Boats and join in
So, please come on
over and join our community of likeminded Wooden Boaters.
