Finally freed up some time to clean the bottom of my Pearson
10M, overdue! Got my scuba gear
, a 3in plastic spackle knife, and a scrubber pad on a handle. (before you ask, I am an experienced and certified diver).
Anyway the plastic knife worked great on the mat of soft growth, but had a lot of problem with the barnacles
. I was able to get most off with a smack and the butt of the knife, but the larger ones would not give up. I used soft plastic to avoid gouging the bottom, but I need a better solution. Cut up my hands through my gloves fighting those little buggers. Any suggestions for an amateur? If it matters, the bay I moor in has very low visibility.
