Has anyone been able to find out whats going on? I tried searching to find some info but nothing.
Try picking up a mooring line and see whats living on it..! Yep..had those little creatures on me in unmeationable areas as well.. Like the water version of human lice... Just wash 'em off with fresh water and soap.
