After three years of…

April 30, 2024

After three years of constantly in the water Tiamat is in need of haul out and a good scrub and a pressure wash. We scraped around 50kg of barnacles and underwater fauna from the hull. The propeller seems good though, thanks to the PropGlide @propglide we applied three years ago.

Also changed the zinc anode on the shaft. The zinc on the weed strip was still in good shape. Just cleaned the surface.

We did not apply a new antifouling paint, because we will haul out next winter anyway and decide until which antifouling system we want to use. New ablative or a hard one? Coppercoat and Silic One are also on the short list. Recommendations are very welcome.
