Best time to paint the hull

 

Most boat owners paint their bottom hull in connection with spring maintenance. A good tip is to paint the hull during autumn maintenance instead.

At this time the temperature and weather conditions for painting are usually better. This way you will also be able to divide the chores, so that everything needn’t be done in a weekend. If the boat is placed in such a way that it is heavily exposed to wind and water, the antifouling can get somewhat leached during the winter season. Otherwise there are no issues with painting your boat during autumn maintenance.
