Does Anybody have any experience or thoughts on the outcome of moving my 45 year old mahogany cold moulded sailing boat to the carribean,
It is UK built and been acustomed to the cold and not so warm climate of both the Uk and Eu.
So what if any impact will the humidity and weather bestow onto the hull?
Ive been informed previously that cold weather and conditions preserves the deterioration of timber boats. Not sure how much truth there is in this statement, But theres still plenty of old Scottish trawlers aournd the waters of the northern Uk and Norway etc
The boat is painted and maintained etc
Is it also common of wood worm and other bugs getting access to the hull.
The hull as of last year was coated with wests epoxy and then epoxy primer and then 2 pack paint.
So there is plent of cover on the hull.
The only weak spot under the water line is where the keel joins the hull and there is always a crack along the join from the flexing of the boat. This i cannot seem to fix except for sikoflexing the seam.
