The boat is 23feet long and the beam is just under 7 feet it has heavy bilge keels and a central keel with a skeg mounted rudder it was built in 1985.
As a point of interest a friend of mine has his 35foot swedish built yacht ashore in the yacht club with bad osmosis, he has ground of the gel coat and daily steam cleans the hull, he has been working on it for 4 months now and it has still got about 20% moisture, however both his boat and mine are significantly worse on the starboard side, this possibly could be related to the fact that Cardiff Bay, since it has been controlled by a barrage has been fresh water and they have a large oxygen pumping system to prevent stagnation, the important fact here is that on both boats we had moorings near the oxygenation units which produce large whirlpools and bubbles near the yachts, do you think it may be a factor????
