Thanks for d advice Jason and Alex. -Jason can you operate the dri diver from your own boat? Also the rope and net method can be done up to the keel only? Will any of the methods clean the keel?
I am not a serious racer but appreciate good performance.
Thanks Mike

Mike, the problem is it does not clean the keel...you really need to dive or wash with pressure washer

Alex, if no one has said it to you I will. You have to many animals in your life. What's up with Penguin bottom paint.
