Bottom Paint or lack of

Postby mdfish » Thu Apr 15, 2010 11:38 am

I think I have seen this topic in years past but here goes. How long can a boat be in the water down there without bottom paint before it will start to damage the gel coat?

I am going down in July to Pirates Cove and I am bringing the carolina skiff. The boat is kept on a trailer and half the year is on fresh water. If it is left in 2-3 days at a time will the bottom clean off with brush and soapy water? :?: I would guess it would depend on how salty the water is at the time we are there some.
