I must say the hour I spent in the water under the boat scrubbing was a fantastic cardio work out. Hey, maybe I'll smear the stuff they put inside Twinkies on the hull. No way anything could live or grow on that.
Personally, I think $65 to $70 to not have to spend an hour scrubbing the bottom of my boat is money well spent. Consider what else you could be doing with the time.
