I have a hookah dive system, that I use to clean the hull
and change anodes , i clean the hull
every month or so and change anodes each year underwater.
I have not applied antifoul paint
for two years now and I was getting round to paying for a lift
out to do this when I got to thinking WHY!?
OK the antifoul on the hull now is more or less shot, but as i am cruising in warm waters, a quick trip over the side each month is no problem.
I think it is force of habit making me think of lifting her, afterall, all antifoul does is try to keep the beasts and weed away, its not as if it is a barrier coat, right?
We live aboard full time, so the saving if i do not bother painting her is not insignificant.
Am I mising something? Or does this sound like a good plan?
