Re: Baby Barnacles

Just did some scraping of the top 2 feet along the waterline.

Our antifouling is in need of redo. I scrubbed the bottom well in the Abacos 1st of May. We've been on the move since then. We've been on the Chesapeake since around the first of June and docked on the upper Magothy for several weeks now without much movement.

Lots of slime to scrape off but no signs of barnacles.

Not enough time?
Too warm now?

It is good to learn from your mistakes, but much better to learn from the mistakes of others...
