Clean Your Boat Bottom In the Water

It seems it does not matter what antifouling paint is used, the time comes when an owner has to grab a scrubby or scraper, hit the water and clean marine growth from the bottom of the hull, well in advance of the next haul out. Hank Schmitt shows us his way and there is a link to our way of using a hookah to clean the bottom.

"there shouldn't be any barnacles on the bottom, if there is you need to paint"

Don't blow air up my rear, be useful and blow it at the sails!
