Re: Egg Whites--Natural Ant-Fouling for Running Gear
I find it interesting how something that doesn't match up with others' pre-conceptions/expectations is so rapidly/easily disregarded.
When I was in the BVI in the late '70's I met a guy that was applying Shark oil on his hull to "control/block growth". "Does that really work?" I asked. "Have you ever seen a Shark with Barnacles?" he answered. Thinking about it, I never had and haven't yet.
