Boat Antifoul Paint - Choose the right paint

An important project for boats out of the water is the routine re-antifouling. Antifouling helps protect the bottom of your boat from the build-up of unwanted matter, algae, and mussels that can be obtained from a season afloat. Launching with fresh boat antifoul paint and waterline paint gives the hull a fresh layer of self-eroding protection.

Boat Anodes - Replace the sacrificial anode before launch

Anodes are designed to help guard against corrosion of underwater gear such as, propellers, shafts and rudders which are vital to the vessel. It is important to check that an anode is in good working order and free from paint or other coverings. A regular anode change could prevent unnecessary and expensive repairs.
