Edge/Revolutionized Ships---Hmmm---$$$$

Recommended Posts

This is a very old topic and I risk opening up a can of worms but consider that the MDR areas "taken away" to form Luminae and Blu previously had the Aqua and Suite passengers dining in the MDR too.  So really a trade off of space vs a takeaway on the older ships.

If there's any doubt about the dark hulls showing more flaws than a white hull, just look at HAL's hulls. They all look like they need repainting.

 

 

It’s amazing the affect of sun and salt on a dark hull.

 

Before my spring and fall transits to and from the Caribbean to New England I would lay 2 or 3 coats of varnish on exterior wood for protection.  All varnished wood on the forward part of the boat would generally get 4 coats.

 

Just the salt spray splashing on the wood on a 10 day passage would be enough to “sand” down layers of varnish and make the finish completely dull.

 

Our fall arrival would coincide the the Charter Brokers show so we had to make the boat pretty AND hit the varnish the moment we arrived.

 

Salt in Ocean Water is like fine-fine sandpaper.

 

Mosy yachts will put a coat of clear Awlgrip on to make them shine.  Salt water, again, would eventually dull the finish.  You just don’t see this gradual change as much on white hulls.
