Tube Fouling

Can anything be done to help with the fouling of RIB tubes.

Normal antifouling works well on the hull etc, but is there anything that be used on the tubes ?.

Also has anyone had any good results using the Copperbot type antifouling. I like the idea of only having to apply only every 5-6 years but have not heard any good reports about its peformance.


Any comments welcome.

Thanks Gary

antifouling paint

I noticed in the June issue of RIB International that Niall O'Flaherty suggests checking with these sources for antifouling paint that would work on the tubes:

International paints - 02380 226722
or
Blake marine - 02380 636373

good luck!
Bryan
