Cheapest bottom cleaning I ever had!

These guys work for food! We just got to Miami and are on a mooring ball off Dinner key. We just spent almost two months in the Banana river near Melbourne. Fouling there is really bad. We were guing to wait until we got down into a little warmer water to clean the bottom. This morning we noticed a large school of pinfish attacking our bottom. More that half the growth was gone by mid-day. What service!!! I hope I successfully attached the picture.

If they could install zincs, I'd be out of work.

Re: Cheapest bottom cleaning I ever had!

Everybody in Miami is friendly, even the fish. Come visit my store and say hello.

If you can't get to my store and you need marine supplies, I charge one beer to deliver to Dinner Key.

It seems a lot of CF'ers are in Miami now. Skip Mac stopped in to say hello today.
The man is nuts. He's got a forty plus foot sailboat in Gainesville! That's at least a two hour drive to get to water to float it in. He's fixing it up with some plans for serious cruising.
