Do I feel that there is a wee advert creeping in here .

No ad creeping in at all.

99 plus percent of all ocean vessels use Antifouling and there are many sorts.
Sofar I have not mentioned any name , brand or system, however, might get caught one day.

Secondly I no longer work......so by mentioning a name I have no advantage at all .

p.s. I know you are not serious on this.

Hope you liked the pictures.
You must admire the Owner who runs this vessel with a lot of passion with very low budgets. Tough guy. Tough ship.
