Personally, I would not be concerned with what you find growing in Clearwater. It's bound to happen and depending on how aggressive the diver it, there may be more or less given the day.
Okay. That helps. Thanks.

Re: Viewed 2005 Carver 360 Sport Sedan today. A couple of questions...

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.?

Yes, Much easier before it dries. When hauled the yard will pressure wash it for you though if you want.

Excellent information, gentlemen! Thank you very much.
