Action Marine also provides Anti-fouling services for boats. A necessity for both freshwater and saltwater boats antifouling protects the hull of a boat from acquiring organic buildup. By applying a specialized paint infused with copper and biocides, marine life is deterred from adhering to the hull. Anti-fouling service requirements vary based on a myriad of factors. Boats that are kept on the water may require antifouling every year, while boats that are taken out of the water may only need it once every two years. Hull material and water type also make a difference in the type of antifouling required.
Antifouling is a very messy job! Most boat owners choose not to complete this job on their own as the boat must be lifted. The boat’s hull must be thoroughly cleaned of any existing organisms. It must be treated, dried, and potentially may need an additional anti-fouling treatment depending on how long it has been. Essentially, its a lot of intensive labor when done correctly.
