Re: Very Murky Upper Chesapeake Bay and Tributaries

In a matter of weeks, my engine cooling water through-hull grew completely clogged by marine funk. I had to ream it out 3 times with a wire coat hanger before I got enough flow.

That hasn't happened in the last two years. Sheesh. The bottom paint still seems to be working though, thank heavens. Bacteria count was high in my cove, so I didn't want to be in the water, scrubbing.
