Hi my name is Daniel, I have a question.

I am the owner of wooden boat, Trojan 1970 38 feet long and I want to paint the interior where the motor is seated.

Is its good are not?

And what percentage of humidity of the wood is better before painting the wood.

Thank you for your response.

why not

Yes, it's a good idea to paint or treat the wood in your bilge.

It protects your wood and makes it easy to clean.

There should be proper ventilation to take care of extra moisture in the air.

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 the conversations.
So, please come on over and join our community of likeminded Wooden Boaters.
