Jaycar Ultrasonic Antifouling

Does anyone have any experience using this product?

https://www.jaycar.com.au/kit-ultras...boats/p/KC5498

It is basically an ultrasonic antifouling system, available in kit form from an Australian Electronics components store.

Also interested in your experience with any other brands that use similar technology.

Re: Jaycar Ultrasonic Antifouling

I built two of the early ones from the kits and installed them in a steel boat. I think they helped but are not the silver bullet I had hoped.

Re: Jaycar Ultrasonic Antifouling

There are some very long threads around on this if you search with lots of feedback and real world results - the end just of which seems to be it works to a degree but will not replace antifoul paint which needs re-doing regularly anyway...

Reading through the user reports I suspect they work on solid or metal hulls, but not cored ones....
