Thanks Nilo for the advice. All this information is ofcourse new to me. I must check what facilities exist in Hurghada to bring the boat out of the water during the off-season and have it stored properly. I haven't heard of anyone there taking their boats out in winter for storage except for the possible annual maintenance and antifouling coating and then they go back in the water. What is the minimum recomended duration to leave a fiberglass boat out of the water to dry and is it required annually?
