I know, I know I read that first as well… but my view is “permanently immersed” is not what a rib hull is that sits on a trailer 99% of the time. In a Searider the deck is almost as immersed as the hull at times?

I read on this was not suitable to use on a keel boat that is on a swinging mooring for 5 months?

That was almost a year ago and the deck is normally awash with rain water any way and all seams fine.

Sorry I was meaning it wouldn't be any good for John's boat as He leaves it on a mooring.

Tim, I think I remember reading about your console being painted but didn't know it was brightside mate. Will go and have another read

Chewy and MDT, my boats no longer left on a mooring but can sometimes spend a few nights on the water.

What about brightside vs toplac? I couldn't find much difference in intended use between the 2.
