How to Keep Your Stored Boat Dry


It may seem trivial, but storage is, if and when possible, a fundamental aspect of maintaining a wooden boat.


The boat must be spotless when preparing for its well-deserved rest period. When the new period of activity in the water approaches, it will be necessary to fine-tune each part, with particular attention, concerning the wooden surfaces, to the use of an impregnating agent such as Tung Olio.


While sailing: the importance of routine maintenance

When, on the other hand, the boat is active (and again: once it has been prepared in advance in the best possible way, by protecting the wood with the impregnating agent), the minor routine maintenance will mainly consist in verifying the constant protection of the wood exposed to both air and water.


From this point of view, again, cleanliness is a fundamental aspect. Dirt and debris are vehicles of humidity, the humidity that can "infect" the wooden surfaces if not maintained.


The key here is consistency: if you worked well initially, before putting the boat back in the water, a fast - but constant! - routine maintenance will be all that is needed.
