Are traditional, carvel planked boats designed to live continuously and exclusively in the water? I like the idea of building without resort to epoxies and resins, but I do not like the prospect—which I think I’ve gleaned from my research—of ruining such a hull by hauling it in the Fall and storing in on the hard for the Winter. I must have gotten the wrong impression. Did the lobsterman of, say, the 1930’s moor his fishing sloop in the water year round? Do I simply need to accept this limitation and deal with the chemistry?
