Re: Cleaning Hull in the water

30' Boat in brackish water. Lottsa slime this summer. Scuba diver with own gear. This summer I tied lines under the boat from side to side. I used this to hold on to while scrubbing with the other hand and a plastic bristle brush. Slime came off very easy. Green scrubbie pads are indeed too course. About an hour to do the job. Quite the aerobic work out. I'm glad I never smoked. Visibility sucked BTW, so after a while your scrubbing by feel.
Oh I forgot I used a pony tank instead of full 80. Much lighter and less bulk in the water.

Yes all true, No wonder no one will go on the water with me.
