To ensure efficiency of your AquaMarine foul release coating, you may need to clean your hull and Rib every three to five weeks in warm waters during the summer season.
Weed growth - may appear around areas where the sunlight reaches in clear, nutrient rich waters e.g. the waterline and rudders. This can easily be wiped off with a soft bristle brush or specialist hull brush such as Scrubbbis.
Barnacle growth - These are best removed using a rubber blade before they reach a size of 15mm in diameter. At this size they will be more difficult to remove and are likely to leave a white footprint as the shell breaks away or may even take the coating with it.
Slime/Algae/Tube worm/Mollusks etc. – These should all easily be removed with the use of a rubber blade or water jet/power washer.
Propellers should be inspected every three to five weeks in warm waters during the summer season and either spun to remove the foul build up or manually wiped. It is better to use a jet wash or blade to remove ‘hard’ fouling as using a cloth could cause the sharp shells to scratch the coating.
