China Crisis Hull paint
« on: December 01, 2018, 08:27:15 AM »
Decided to strip varnish and redo over winter.Took boat apart yesterday ready to move to workshop in doing so removed centreboard, however on turning boat on side discovered a lot of cracking in the paintwork following the lines of the planking. This is my first 12 and first planked boat do I need to be concerned or is this normal ? Maybe paint not flexible enough.

I'm undertaking the same process with my crusader. I found the same when I turned the boat over to paint.

I spent quite a bit of time sanding and filling where needed. Applied the fresh paint, it seems to have sorted the lines and cracks in the old paintwork.
