A step-by-step guide to anti-fouling your boat with how-to videos and safety advice
Anti-fouling your boat is never much fun, especially in winter, but it remains a job well worth attending to and the rewards are significant.
Apart from looking unsightly, heavy fouling will slow your boat down and increase fuel consumption by up to 10% in some cases. Excessive fouling will make the handling less responsive and your boat will be more difficult to manoeuvre in close quarters situations. If left unattended, the longer-term effects of hull fouling can result in extremely expensive repair bills.
