DIRTY and LEAKY BOTTOM
Last season I was forced to leave my boat in the marina for four weeks whilst a new trailer was delivered: the existing one having been stolen.
During the four weeks the bottom developed a thick crust of weed and barnacle giving the appearance of Desperate Dan's chin after a drunken spinach eating fest.
Also, water, in huge quantities, seeped in to the space between the hulls. This had to have pumped out at the boatshop (there was so much my maximum speed went from 35 to 25 knots, even after spending three days scraping). The fixer assured me that the water was ingressing via the D ring holes on the bow but I'm not convinced.
- What type of anti-fouling would be suitable?
- Is the water ingress normal?
Your advice upon my predicament please.
