FB,

That is where in water like I am at 42-45F year around is different than you where it is probably 50-60F? all year. Things will grow quicker etc. For the most part here in puget sound, I have to deal with slime and grassy stuff, along with barnicles seem to be the next in line. Mussels etc seem to generally speaking, not get attached to boat bottoms..........note, generally speaking. I know of three or four boats on my dock that have not moved in at least 4-5 yrs, and have mussels, barnicals etc on them. Probably 600-1000 lbs worth of different shell and brown and green algae type stuff on them. Including a few browns that are 3' long!

Marty
