Re: Baby Barnacles

From what I understand it's a result of the Government's recent ban on Baby Barnacle hunting by Native Tribes in the northeast. Some nannies thought that the clubbing of the little buggers was inhumane, despite the fact that these tribes have depended on the barnacle for disgusting soup for tens of thousands of years.

Now look what you have to live with because of organizations like PETB!

Re: Baby Barnacles

No, you misunderstood the law. The native tribes are still allowed a limited harvest, but they have to harpoon them from polar bear skin canoes. The real problem isn't the desire to hold the hunt....it's more that party season has begun, and the companies that used to supply harpoons of that size have converted their works to the more lucrative cocktail fork industry.

Damb shame, really. Our sea-going traditions are wasting away in front of our eyes.

Re: Baby Barnacles

Anyone know how far up the bay these barnacles may be? My new to me boat was splashed in the Magathy River in December and moved with in a few days to the Sassafras. I took the boat out this weekend for the first time since moving it and noticed that my knot log is no longer working. If this is likely the case, does anyone have a recommendation for a diver in Georgetown MD?

If you haven't cleaned your knot log since December, it's definitely fouled. Not necessarily barnacles, but foul with growth for sure.

In the warmer months, I never leave mine installed when the boat is docked. It just fouls too quickly.

Oh man, I did not need that image in my mind....

I was going to say something about how cleaning the barnacles off of baby bottoms was a job for their mothers, but now you said this and I am thinking you beat me to the humor in this one.

Ditto that for me. I painted the boat in April and noticed an alarming number of barnacles yesterday. Thanks, Obama!
