My old on-board lifeboat seems to have been originally painted with what looks like bitumen both inside and out in the parts which cannot usually be seen. ***C2Add2.shtml***
It has been an extremely difficult task to clean it off the hull and I wondered if I need to get it all off or is it still considered a good protection.
It seems to be used mainly on roofs these days.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated and acted upon.
I intend to oil the timber above the waterline
