So, due to a lack of available marina spots and the 12 months waiting list, we're dry storing between cruises at the moment.
We have Nautix A88 on the bottom, and I guess an unexpected advantage of dry storing is that the antifoul will (?) last much longer.
Any caveats to this approach? I mean, if we have the boat in the water 2 weeks at a time for only 8-12 weeks a year, I figure our antifoul should last bloody ages. But am I wrong? Will it wear out or stop working anyway if it's kept out of the water for 2 months at a time?
I guess our anodes will last longer, too - the anodes on the sail drive already look quite corroded after only 6-7 weeks.
The options in the future will be:
2400 a year marina fees + 2000 a year for antifoul (applied)
200 per month dry + 400 bucks for each in and out... and maybe antifoul every 4 years?
