Re: [Amel] Amel Orange Boot Stripe

    Once we moved onto our Amel as "liveaboards" we raised the antifoul to meet the stripe......after doing it we were told by others that this was a certain sign of "liveaboards"
   Now that we have decided to stay in Phuket, and do no more ocean the next haulout I was thinking of re-adjusting the waterline......say no more!!
   Glad to see that your move from the Maldives to the Med went well.

All the Best

Eric, I was tempted to raise the antifouling paint to meet the stripe to solve the same issue, but I believe that BeBe will begin to loose weight now that we are in the Med...we'll see.

I noticed a few weeks ago that the boot stripe area in the stern had marine
growth. The yard recommended that I raise the waterline as the stern is
lower in the water than the stripe.

Did you or any other owner raise the stripe?

We are in Marmaris, Turkey and just had the boot stripe renewed using a two
part paint matched to Amel orange.

We have purchased the paint twice and have paint, hardener and thinner
available for any Amel owner in the area to pick up.
