    Aluminum Question

    As some of you have read by now, I am considering a used Pluckebaum houseboat. I know the structures are made well and of Aluminum. That being said, I was wondering how often (average) they have to be repainted and what other maintenance would need to be performed?

    Coal Tar Epoxy on the bottom 7 years. AwlGrip or equal, shed kept, 15/20 years outside 5 to 10. Pluckebaum's are the best there is. Best boat we ever owned.
    The fries are cold so we gave you extra.
