Below waterline coating application on a 58ft boat.

Featured Posts

Yesterdays task was barnacle busting and surface preparation before masking to ensure the blacking remained untouched.

Today recoating. With a 10' 6" draft we have to be careful where we go.

Waitangi 1894 built and regularly raced in her original gaff rigged form.

1200sq ft mainsail and 200sqft topsail above, no winches. 3 head sails.

Her best sailing angle is about 40degrees heel. Four deck planks underwater

The long keel gives a huge turning radius

 Don't call a sudden "STARBOARD" and expect her to turn away in less then 100 m radius and even more if the running backstays need to be changed over.

Similar limitations when I used to sail with friends on their steel ketch, 38 feet with 6 feet draught. I think it was last seen in your half of the world, named Oyaragh.

Just asking, but the term Blacking really means Antifouling or have I missed something.

Yeah it's called "blacking" because it's black. That's "redding."

In our case the blacking is the gloss paint above the waterline..

They are polishing the white salt staining off that today.

What fantastic lines, what a thing of beauty!      

 

Not sure why it's on this forum but nice to see it.

That black gloss paint is what I know as a boot line.

My understanding, but pleased to be corrected, is a line of contrasting colour either directly between the hull colour and the underwater colour or a seperate line just above, if the green band in the photo was paint instead of masking tape, it would be a bootline.

No bowthruster eh? A beautiful boat, just look at the overhang on the stern. Many years ago I worked at Lymington on the South coast and at that time there were boats of that shape that could be quite cheap because they were not family weekend sailers. A labour of love to own that one.

OK, got it now, viewing on my phone, the hull is painted in gloss black paint not "blacking" in the sense that a canal boater would use ie some form of bitumen. And the underwater part of the hull is being painted in antifoul to keep the weed growth and marine wildlife at bay so you do not have a boot line.
