Hell of a price. I would wait a little longer befoe I plopped down that much money. Is there a chance of material fatigue with that much constant vibration? just asking. If it truley works, I'm in.

Another magic bullet?

I'll believe it works when I see it work.

They require 25 watts of power 24 x 7 for the times when the water is warm. Results will dimish with hulls over 30 mm thick. Wood boats need not apply.

1399.00 euros (VAT included)

Rumors that a "Magic fingers" option attaches to your berth are unconfirmed.

Fastbttms, I wouldn't go looking for a new occupation anytime soon.

Can't see it working, but.....
The other point would be noise pollution. Maybe we can't hear it, but what about other marine life that do hear or sense that kinda Freq. The sonic vibrations would have to be low enough in freq. for the little creatures to feel it. I mean, air bubbles aren't going to stop critters.

If this works like the Ultrasonic weight reducing or abs firming system you could kill two birds with one stone. Slim down while you sleep in your boat. I think I better start marketing this right now.LOL The ultrasonics that we use in industry to measure tank levels, fluid flow emit a vibration that is hard to detect. Ultra sonic cleaners that were attached to tanks for cleaning small parts worked but emitted a buzzing noise. I would have to wonder mostly about the ultrasonic waves breaking down the Fibre Glass. The bottom would be clean but trashed.
