Well I said I had done my final word on the thread. But ....................
I was under the boat just last week and checked and cleaned it. Since then I left a marshy location in Fort Myers Beach and went out into the Gulf then to Punta Gorda Fl into the mouth of the Peace River (brackish) for 3 days and now am anchored in the GIWW south of Venice Fl. Went in for a swim just now and while in checked the bottom. The barnacles have now moved to growing pretty much everywhere and it has BEEN LESS THAN A WEEK!!!
Yard must have used Behr house paint.
