1963 Greavette, Executive Model, "Shelley Ann"

The paint on the transom peels off by hand, between the paint and the wood is a layer of thin white crust, is this the early stages of rot?

Any input would be greatly appreciated, thank you.

Hi Mike,
Thanks for your comment/info. After scraping and sanding that looks to be the case, just old failed paint.

Happy boating.

Looks more like old undercoat paint.

If it was rot the wood would be soft and crumbly.

I suggest that you clean it all off and repaint, starting with a good quality undercoat.

You’ll probably have to use a scraper as the soft stuff will clog up sand paper, just be careful not to damage the top layer of the plywood.
