Bottom haul out problems on 1960 55' Stephens wood boat
1960 55' Stephens has been in the water 3 years.
This is northwest Washington salt water considered toxic.
I am concerned with the cleaning process.
The haulout process includes pressure washing.
I am concerned whether the pressure washing will do the job.
All in all its a costly process so I'd like any ideas, past experience, etc.
I am aware of the necessity for good bottom paint and the need for zincs and cleaning of all through hulls.
My real concern is the bottom growth, mussel shells etc.
I want to be prepared before I have the boat hauled out.
Appreciate any information.
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.
