In a Foul Mood !

I was recently away from the boat for over a month. As expected when I got back on board I had a lot of marine growth on the prop and shaft. I did a little experiment before I dived down with my scrapper to tackle the mess, I fired up my electric propulsion system and just powered it forward and reverse at the mooring a couple of times. I've got some videos before and after this procedure here:

Happily, most of the soft marine growth disappeared off the prop and shaft leaving just the barnacles to be scraped off.
