I was only making 1.5-2.5kt on a 9 kt boat and figured fouling...Had the prop. and bottom dove on and all resolved.
My question is, how quickly does this growth occur and what can you do?
I know it depends on the conditions (warmer waters) and the boat (more complicated hardware) but wonder about avoiding such major fouling. I left the boat for 4 months in SF bay and expect that is where it all occurred.
Should you spin the prop once a week, month or what to prevent major fouling?
