I have heard that once a/f has been bleached it losses its effectiveness is this right?
Down in the same neck of the woods and I have been using the acid method for the 2 years I have had the boat. I've only had to spray 3 times this year and when I pulled the boat the hull was still clean. (yes I know the weather is brilliant right now but my wife is expecting in 8 days and I don't want to take any chances if the weather turns and I'm not here to keep an eye on it)
Keep an eye on your hull especially from late May through the end of August. Yes the acid breaks down completely in water so it is a LOT more evironmentally friendly than antifouling which is basicly a poison.
From your comment about off islands I assume you are on St Marys so give me a shout if you are heading to Old Grimsby.
All the best Ian.
