It doesn't do anything in freshwater, which is why you need an antifouling that is rated for both if you sail in both. I moor in fresh water and sail in fresh and saltwater, which is why I use Bottomkote ACT with Iragol. Iragol 1051, for example, is a freshwater antifouling additive that defeats both saltwater and freshwater algae.

No, it doesn't explode, but you might when you start seeing buildup on a beautifully finished Micron 66 paintjob!
