Everything you always wanted to know about hull cleaning, but ...
were afraid to ask!

Why do I need an underwater hull cleaning service?
  The obvious reason is to keep your boat bottom clean.

But why do I need to keep it clean?
  Regularly scheduled underwater hull cleaning is the single most important preventative maintenance service!

  First frequent underwater hull cleaning extends the life of your bottom paint.

  First, by removing the algae slime layer before invertebrate (Hard growth) can attach and dig into the bottom paint.

  Second cleaning the painted surfaces is only part of the job. The diver must also tend to clean the unpainted metal parts of your vessel, primarily the running gear and thru hulls. Proper cleaning of the hull, running gear and thru hulls improves vessel performance and saves fuel costs. Keeping the thru hull intakes clear ensures proper performance of the various systems inside the vessel, engine, generator, head, air conditioner, refrigerator and galley.

  Third, another extremely important service provided by the underwater hull cleaning diver is tending to and replacing the sacrificial anodes (Zinc). The diver must inspect, tighten and periodically replace the various zinc anodes which protect the different metal parts of the vessel from galvanic corrosion (electrolysis).

  Fourth, during the hull cleaning process the diver inspects the hull and hardware as he cleans it for impact damages and electrolysis. He also monitors the fiberglass hull for osmotic blistering, the wood hull for worm damages and the steel or aluminum hull for electrolysis.
