Re: Baby Barnacles

I launched in early April after having painted the bottom with two coats of a premium copper ablative. The bottom has not been cleaned since. Normally after 2 1/2 months I would expect to see slime and little to no hard growth, but I went swimming while at anchor this weekend and was alarmed at how much hard growth was forming on especially on the aft quarters and on top of the rudder.
