Boat Scrubber East Cowes Marina

Tried to book the rib for a scrub but have been told due to technical problems it will be months before running again. Cancelled subscription today any one else signed up on the Island to be aware.

I heard the Port Solent one was being removed, and then put back.. It seems the inventor tinkered one time too many, and made the thing inoperable.. The Haslar one is still there, with a rumour its being moved to the outside of the hammerhead so it can accomodate longer vessels..

Up Date on East Cowes Boat Srubber

I may be taking over the running of the boat scrubber have a meeting next week will let you know what happens . I still like the idea of it and it does make a difference just need to work out some terms and conditions and it should be up and running again.

Sorry to show my complete ignorance of the "scrubber" but does it clean a non antifouled hull?How often should you have it done?How much does it cost?
You can tell i really don't want to paint my bottom
