Preparing bare wooden hull and topsides for winter storage
by Larry Yackle
I have just sanded all the paint off the bottom and topsides of my wooden catboat.
So I'm down to the bare wood.
I will store the boat outside on stands.
Do I need to put any kind of sealer or oil on the bare wood for the winter?
PS: Next spring, do I need to put on some kind of primer before painting the bottom and topsides?

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.
