For the last 35years 'the people' have happily abdicated personal responsibility, independence and freedom to the State.. to late to whinge.
You have colluded through inaction in the creation of a system where just a single click of a mouse somewhere in the world can effectively terminate your life... as you know it.
No money, no job.. no home.. Enjoy Suckers.

I hope LEAF works & is a reasonable price. The cost of AF paint has gone thru the roof lately. It will soon be as cheap to do it the original way

I'll throw in a $Loonie-worth 75cents US

Actually-they clean ship bottoms with somewhat remote controlled creeper thingys. My son( Com. diver) was involved a bit some yrs ago.

I wonder if that is how the cursed green crabs & other foreign organisms get transported. You don't haul a 1000ft tanker to clean the bottom.
That is a good argument in favor of more potent AF paints-the lesser of two "weevils"-but the tree huggers don't seem to be aware of the damage done by foreign organisms,do they. These "do good" groups & politicos are always acting on emotion rather than facts. They deal with half a deck every time!

Cheers/ Len

I even had a meeting here in Oakland with the inventor (an engineer for Jacuzzi) to discuss the machine's potential in the hull cleaning industry.

The bottom line was that Hulltimo devices are quite limited in the range of fouling they are capable of cleaning and extremely expensive as well. Other than the unit I was given, I have never seen another Hulltimo product in use. I believe the original company was sold and is now call Hulltimo Mauritius.

Re: No more DIY antifouling in EU countries?

So now they're stealing ideas from inside my head before I've even thought of them

Note to self: buy more tinfoil.

Remora. Coincidence? I think not.

Re: No more DIY antifouling in EU countries?

We have no problems doing the work ourselves in Italy today. California was an expensive endeavor to have a shipyard do the bottom paint. It cost $1800 six years ago to have a single coat done up in Saucalito,CA on our Hunter 45ft boat with all the environmental BS additional costs. This summer, I'll paint the bottom myself on a 54 foot boat in three hours for less than 220€ Or around $250.
