ASM Marine Sonics Antifouling

Hi ,
This is an Australian firm/product I believe. Does anyone have any experience or feedback on Sonics for antifouling. Frequently asked questions are given/answered under www.asmaustralian.com
Would appreciate feedback,
Clyde

Antifouling

Obviously with NO RESPONSE, antifouling is not a very important issue , suppose we've been conditioned to paint which only temporarly works.
Heres enjoying barnacles!

If we are talking about the same thing, this is not new technology.
One of my mates had pulse type equipment on his DeFever 38 10 yrs ago.
I will ask him over a beer tonight what he thought of it.
He no longer has the DeFever, but also has not installed it on his 2 Monk 36's and 1 Monk 42 in the meantime.

I would imagine that if it worked and it would have been done years ago. This is an old idea that pops up periodically. We had a thread on this topic a few months back.
