IF folkboat to dry out completly in the low tide

Inlägg av Filipe » tis 18 jul 2017 18:12

Dear friends,
I would like to ask what happens if the IF folkboat is left to dry out completly in the low tide? Will the boat sink or not?
Thank you very much,
Best regards,
Filipe

Since the IF (outside Sweden often called International Folboat) is a GRP construction, I see no reason why anything would happen if it is not in water for some time.

If your question relates to the original wooden Folkboat, I suggest that you ask your question on a forum for such boats, for example The Wooden Boat forum http://forum.woodenboat.com/
