Re: Ultrasonic Antifouling

Okay its official, food fight. Some one here implied PNW (my case - coastal BC) doesn't have the same fouling problems as a 1000 miles south. This statement may be true but implies bigger and better growth down south. What I can say is that fouling was so bad, going two years was really pushing it, and the stuff was everywhere and long and barnacley in Horseshoe Bay in BC, really West Vancouver. Where I am in Comox is much better, in fact when I hauled my boat out for refit I couldn't believe what I saw, no growth. I talked to my refitter and he said the marinas in Comox have combo water, ocean and fresh water, he feels this helps. In Horseshoe Bay, the constant moving of the BC ferry props really oxygenated the water and we had the healthiest anything living there in the water. In fact there might have been a cure for cancer in the growth I had on my boat in Horseshoe Bay.

Going two years between what? Bottom jobs? Hull cleanings?
