Re: One Of The Worst Fouled Bottoms I've Ever Come Across

It all depends. In Newfoundland we see very little bottom growth in a season, 4 months, almost nil. In Luperon, DR I swear the growth move faster than the moon. At first you see nothing, have a beer or two and look back, and itís moved! A month there and you need a cleaning.

Clean flowing water is fairly OK. Sitting in a port with little water exchange and you can get a lot of growth quickly, especially if itís warm.
