I've just splashed an older planked boat that had been out of the water for several years.
Does 95% of the swelling occur in the first week after the boat has been put back in the water? ...after the first month?
The planking is Port Orford cedar. It's been bottom painted w/the standard smelly stuff. Inside of the hull has several coats of oil based paint.
TIA for responses related to the question.
