Fuel Saving is the major reason for making underwater hull cleaning an integral part of planned maintenance.
A build up of marine fouling can lead to increased drag, resulting in a detrimental impact on a vessel's hydrodynamic performace and hence the relationship between speed, power performance and fuel consumption. Fouling, particularly in the case of a prolific build up of 'hard or shell fouling' like barnacles or tubeworm, can cause turbulence, cavitation and noise, frequently affecting the performace of soners, speed logs and other hull mounted sensors.

Few things are more frustrating than gathering the kids in your boat and heading to the lake--only to find that your boat will not start. Outboard motors, while often dependable given relative inactivity for much of the year, can fail. Fuel that has been in the tank for over 30 days should be drained and replaced with clean, fresh fuel. In marine outboard engines use high octane fuel.
