Had another go on the scrubber , and must have new brushes on as the boat is alot cleaner now. I am going to sign up for the year and see how it goes not much to lose and you get unlimited scrubs so once a week for me I think.
Tim,

How much is it to sign up?

Best boat scrubber I have seen was at Yarmouth a couple of weeks ago.

Bloke in wetsuit with mask, snorkel and a hand scrubbing brush.

He didn't need to get the water taxi back to the quayside, either!

I found that divers seem to miss patches quite a lot.

Just spoken to them, its under new ownership.. From what I could see, the original concept of getting the hull coated, was expensive and a pita.. Now, if all they are doing is scrubbing it, then its gotta be worth a looksee..

Had my rib done at Hamble last week and took it out straight afterwards to have a look to see about this 18 month thing.
Was very disappointed, didn't get in the steps and the transom and outboard were untouched.
Might be different if it is done weekly but I think Anti foul and a jet wash are the way forward.
