Good Evening everyone,
I recently bought my first boat and am not originally from the Chesapeake Bay area. The past three months I kept the boat in a slip without any bottom paint and to say the least had a "great" time getting all those little barnacles off the bottom of the hull. Some glue from the barnacles are still on the hull but I think I cleaned it pretty well.
Anyways I am trying to avoid so much work for next year and looking into bottom painting the boat. I am not sure where to start but I will be keeping the boat in the water from April until December. Is there a special type of bottom paint that I should be using since the boat will not be in the water year round? If it helps the boat will be sitting on a trailer and more than likely put in the barn back up near Pittsburgh during the winter. Also if anyone knows or has a place near Annapolis that I could keep a trailer during the season that would be help too. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance for the help.
