    suspect something to do with water temperatures and salinity ?

    Across the way, pulled out in late May, so have been in for just over 12 months since last lift. Not fouling to be seen on the hull anywhere, apart from 'slime'. But the critters loved the trim tabs, easily cleaned with a wallpaper scraper. Last 2 seasons have used Seajet coastal A/F and, so far, pleased with the result...…..Now to actually get it on the plane. Will be trialling over the weekend.

    Fouling ......Must be something to do with being on "our side" of the river
    Nice to see you at Lady Lyndsies a week or two ago.
    Thames was unusually quiet for mid summer, mind you, lack of staff at one or two locks might be putting off some folks from moving around.
    Downside is the numbers of narrowboats now on the Thames occupying the EA moorings.As most of them are long term visitors, they tend not to move as often as other visiting and local craft.
