Further information about antifouling:

Antifouling your vessell is probably one of the most important jobs you need to do to for the best protection, as once fouling takes a hold on the hull then it can rapidly colonise the surface causing ongoing problems with performance, safety and structure, such as,
--Decreased performance
Increased fuel consumption and cost
-Damage to propellers
-Blockages to engine water inlets and outlets

What is it and how does it work?
Antifouling paint is a specialised coating, normally containing a formulation of water-soluble bioactive ingredients and organotin compounds, that is then applied to the hull of your vessel which slows the growth of barnacles, algae and marine organisms that attach to the hull.
