The antifoul service at Gladesville Bridge Marina is a crucial aspect of boat maintenance that helps protect your vessel's hull and improve its overall performance. Antifouling is a preventive maintenance process applied to a boat's hull to deter the growth of marine organisms, such as barnacles, algae, and mollusks.
Benefits of regular Antifouling;
- Reduced hydrodynamic drag resulting in better fuel economy and improved speed.
- Prevention of hull damage where marine growth can damage the hull's surface over time, leading to corrosion and deterioration.
- Extended lifespan of your boat by preventing long-term damage and reducing costly repairs
Many boat owners opt for an annual antifouling service, especially in area with a higher risk of marine growth, like warm and nutrient-rich waters. Regular inspections should also be completed to inspect your hull for signs of marine growth.
