Sherpa receives a monthly bottom cleaning year round. Algae, barnacles, and other nasties grow quickly on my bottom in the warm Florida waters. I start to get barnacles on the hull and running gear in less than a month during the summer (I'm using Pettit Trinidad bottom paint). It is amazing how a few barnacles on the prop can drop my WOT RPM and affect performance.

Three years after my bottom job with the boat sitting in a fresh water shed, I had a diver clean the bottom. The fwd 2/3 of the hull was nearly spotless and the back 1/3 needed just a light brushing to clear the little growth that was there.

Enjoy that lobster dinner!!

Nah. Gonna scarf down those Apalachicola oysters while there are a few still around. Not going to be around much longer, though. I give them five years at most, and then they will be gone. Sad, but true.

We're in Fort Lauderdale and go three weeks or four depending on the time of year and usage. But doing it that frequently it's not that difficult to do. A lot better than waiting.

I figure a barnacle on the prop is worth about ten on the bottom. And they like to grow there.
