Was at my local rib centre today to get some safeboatskin. I though this was an alternative to antifoul for the hull, which it is. It can also be used on tubes and engine legs. The guy showed me today how it looks on tubes and I must say I was very impressed. It gave them a nice deep shine and made them look like new. He said that if you leave the boat for say 2 weeks by which time there should be some substantial growth on the hull/tubes and then simply drive off, everything simply slips off at about 5/6 kts. Theres some info here:
I started a thread back along looking to see if anybody had used the stuff, but nobody has? There are several people who have used it in Cork (I was talking to 2 of them today at the rib centre) and there have been no complaints so far. 1 bottle will do a 6m boat twice. I will definitely be putting it on my new boat. Is expensive though at €80 a go, but I reckon I will save this on cleaning products and have more time out on the water and less scrubbing!!
David, Love the new boat!!
