Just got back from Kings Bay and Pete's Pier Marina. I was in a kayak
. The algae seemed to only be at the waterline and was easy to scrape off. After that there seemed to be 1/16 " - 1/8" of other dark slime which also was easy to scrape off. Oh...the algae growth was about an inch...and again, only at the waterline.
Now I have a question. It seems to me that if you were in the water
the growth is soft and scrapes off easy. If the boat is hauled and would sit in the sun for a week it seems the algae and slime would not come off very easy as it would be baked on.
So is it easier for a diver to clean the bottom of the boat...if have the boat hauled them scraped.?
