Annual Maintenance:

At The Boat Clinic we provide a complete package that is affordable, reliable and above all exceptionally high quality. We take the opportunity to give your hull a good visual inspection during the antifouling process to ensure everything is in good order! We also check for things like osmosis, cracking and early signs of electrolysis! Below we have outlined the usual process we take when performing and Antifouling service.

The Antifoul Process

Should you be unable to deliver your boat to us, we can arrange for pickup.

Using the Travel-lift your vessel is lifted and high pressure washed to clean most of the organic growth.The hull is inspected and all inlets/outlets are cleaned. If the vessel is stern driven, the leg is thoroughly inspected and cleaned, removing all contaminate from the leg, focusing special attention to the most vulnerable parts of the Stern Drive Leg around the bellows where excessive growth can lead to premature failure of the below’s causing sea water to enter the area between the gimbal bearing on the transom and the rear leg bearing which can cause failure and seizure to many related components. This is a very important part of the inspection and cleaning process.

The hull is then sanded to prepare for the application of the antifoul. Antifoul can be either rolled or applied using our latest Wagner airless spray equipment.

Anodes are placed back on the vessel or replaced if required.

After the manufacturers recommended cure time, the vessel is lifted back into the water and is ready for delivery. We can deliver the boat back to you if required.

Antifoul is generally a 12-18 month product depending on the type of product used.

Prop Speed

Given the harsh running environment that your prop maintains, moving large volumes of water and constantly residing in a whirlwind of turbulent water it isn’t a surprise that a prop coated with antifoul may not last as long as the expected service life of other less turbulent areas of the vessel. This early wear off has obvious consequences, to mention a few; the growth on your prop over time should the antifoul wear off will reduce vessel performance and  decreased fuel economy.

The Boat Clinic utilize an advanced Prop Protection system from PropSpeed™ which is an advanced primer and silicone based top coat which resists wear in the turbulent environment of a working propellor and provides protection from organic growth.
