Even if you have them repaired you can't risk leaving it in the water for extended time. Your other choice is a bottom paint and then you can leave it in. But that will de-value the boat I believe.
leaving the boat in the water for the summer is very, very common here so I really never thought anything of it. Perhaps a lot just live with blisters or it just isn't that common, I am not sure. I am going to wait until I see what the quotes are before I decide, on one hand I am trying to tell myself just to live with it but on the other it is already stressing me out and I'm not sure I could put my boat back in the lake next year knowing the blisters are there.
