It is pretty much standard in the islands to scrub the bottom every two months or so. Perhaps less of a problem than in a nutrient-rich environment anywhere, but still a problem. At least it is nice and warm and clean to do the scrubbing. Did mine somewhere (forget where now) and I had about 20 fish hanging around to catch the little barnacles I was popping off.
After the refit we have decided to sell Ainia. We want something smaller that would be could for the light summer winds of Lake Ontario, although we plan to spend at least a couple of winters in the Caribbean before heading north.
