Mooring / berth for a Status 580
Interested in purchasing a Status 580 and keeping on the water in a berth.
Berths are on a creek with reduced wave action compared to a Marina (creek leading into Port Phillip).
Would there be any concerns keeping a Status permanently in the water? Assuming itís correctly anti fouled.
Any advice or comments appreciated.

Re: Mooring / berth for a Status 580
Hi Simon, One thing that can happen to a boat moored is that cast iron Swing Keel can expand and become very hard to lower / raise.
Also, Cast iron is susceptible to rusting in salt water. It would a good idea to thoroughly cover the whole keel with an epoxy paint before mooring her.
