You write in yoyr article that the frequency of "osmosis" is
Hull size < 25´ = 5%, 26´- 40´ = 15%, 41´- 50´ = 30%, 51´- 65´= 60%. As to bigger hulls, so far the HYAB research covers only 6 yachts, all of which were affected.
Could this possibly be due to changes over time in construction methods/techniques too? Older boats are generaly smaller and thus over-represented in the 5% group, so you will have some element of self-selection.
