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?

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

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.
