Cleaning: when and how often?
To optimize boat performance, hull cleaning is desirable as soon as fouling accrues, normally every 4-12 weeks. Factors that impact on cleaning frequency include:
- Geographical location
- Regional variations
- Water temperature
- Water salinity
- Frequency and duration of boat usage
- Boat speed
For best results regular cleaning is recommended. This will prevent marine fouling building up. However, Drive-In Boatwash will remove even resistant fouling such as adult barnacles.
