Hi Dino

cost is 27 per month for unlimited scrubs . The boat is tied alongside a moving pontoon. The brushes are then raised and the boat passes over them takes around 20 mins for a rib. It does make a difference on fuel consumption with a nice clean bottom. It is not so great on removing heavy fouling but if you start clean and maintain it that way then not a problem. It does clean around the transom very well but a long brush on mine does the job fine. If you keep it in the water and don't want to antifoul then a couple times a month should be ok.

Hi Tim
Sounds good,I'm going to keep her on a drying mooring so she shouldn't foul,just get mud stains.Are you going to take it over then?Is there a time limit on the 27 a month?i.e.can you subscribe for 4 months at a time?
