Is that YOUR hull? is that growth since you brought it to Wales, or did it start in the CI?

I just don't know - the stuff did survive 3 washes in my dishwasher - I was quite suprised - would have thought the hot water would have removed it easily.
My dishwasher barely removes the food if it is burnt/dried on at all.

Err, we've got way off the topic here.

So should I antifoul or not?

Yes, its a commerical vessel and you are running a business. Spending hour after hour cleaning and polishing your hull every week isn't earning you a living. Spending the same time actively marketing the business would.

In fairness it was cleaned off very well by Jason before I brought it home. All that muck is totally home grown!!! The water in our harbour is quite warm - 19C so no wonder the stuff is thriving.

So does that mean your rib is too big or your dishwasher is too small?

If you use a hard antifoul there is no way you will loose 5kts in comparision with a weeks worth of slime and barnacles.

I don't beleive it really affects actual value unless there are tonnes of layers. If the antifoul is sanded back each year, I think that you may reduce sellability slightly.

Good example of what happens if you don't antifoul turned up in Yarmouth this afternoon, pretty little Avon 5.6m in blue and white. Shame about the 6 inches of fouling on the hull and tubes. Steve was heard to say she (the driver) could do with a lawn mower to clean that lot off.
