fouled bottom on sailboat effect - YouTube
By any chance, were your two vessels rafted together and underway with you recording with your camera when the tug boat skippers were making all that "ahole noise" to let you know they were "peeved" with you? I Keep Peeving Tugs.

I looked at a 26 ft sailboat that was for sale in the river. Could have buried a hand into the fouled hull. Didn't buy it.

Re: Video: What a fouled bottom does....

Here's two videos of my hull, the first was after only 2 weeks of sitting in Antigua and the second is after scraping.

Zanshin - Hull growth in Antigua after cleaning - YouTube (After)

The boat sailed noticeably better afterwards.

That's not fouled, this is fouled:
