    Default Subscrub Foiling Scrubber by Heath-Robinson

    IMG_5821.jpgIMG_5822.jpgIMG_5823.jpg
    I bought this a long time ago at a boat jumble thinking it would serve to scrub our bottom in the tide at our mooring, or maybe going along under auto-pilot. But I've never tried it and now we need to downsize for the big move.
    It's designed to use water movement and foils to press the brushes against the hull. Tether it to the bow and pull up and down under the boat, then move along and repeat etc. There's a bit on the web still.
    So if you fancy something to play with on the summer cruise, or maybe want to understand foils a bit better, or just can't resist something so intriguing at a bargain price...
    £15 plus p and p and it's yours to play with. In pristine condition.

    Interested - any idea what P&P to Littleport, Cambridgeshire might be?

    We had one of those. You need to be travelling very slowly to use it, the drag is remarkable and its much harder work that you can imagine.
