Re: Need answer to something I've always Wondered About

I clean my boat on a regular basis as I am in the Caribbean. I use a scraper [or brush if the fouling just scum] mounted on an 8 ft handle. This allows me to work from the surface, I wear snorkel gear but do not need to dive down.

I can do my 44 ft mono in an hour the prop takes me the most time.

Do not be tempted to extend a snorkel as you can not clear your exhaled CO2 from the tube.
