I will be leaving my boat in the water this year for the first time. I am looking for opinions if I should bottom paint my boat or not. I have searched and read many posts on the subject, but I am still undecided.
Most people say to paint it. But, a few people who's opinions I respect are in the minority group, saying not to paint it...just to pull it out and clean it occasionally.
What does everyone think? Getting it professionally done sounds very expensive (quoted $4200). Will I be OK if I don't paint it, and clean it every so often? Or will I regret that decision and wish I would have painted it?
This is for a glass boat that will be docked in Whittier.
Thanks for your inputs!!
