Ship and boat owners know the effects of a fouled hull. Growth on the bottom of your boat is as common as heat in the summer. Instead of a smooth, clean hull slipping through the water, marine growth creates drag, reducing speed. Extra demand on engines to maintain speed means increased fuel consumption, an added coast regardless of vessel size.
Fouling is the result of marine growth, a constant process which begins between one and four months. Fouling occurs even on a newly painted clean hull treated with the best toxic paints. If left unchecked growth continues until the anti-fouling coat is penetrated, then the seal coat, finally the hull itself is damaged.
Tests show a fouled hull can increase fuel cost by more than 15% - 20%. Just removing an inch of growth from your hull will greatly increase your mileage, therefore possibly saving you hundreds or even thousands of dollars. Can you afford this? On the other hand, can you afford dry docking every six months or even yearly? This is where Boat Buddies comes in! A alternative to frequent dry-dock maintenance is under water hull cleaning with us.

Hull and Prop Inspections:
An unfortunate, but far too common occurrence, is the occasional grounding. In most cases causing little if any damage. However, not all are as lucky as this may cause serious damage to the hull and or prop. Most boat owners want to know, and are willing to pay for the boat to be lifted from the water to confirm the condition. This can be a costly experience, and is not unheard of to have it happen more than once a year. For a fraction of the cost, we will confirm your boats condition and have you on your way shortly after we begin. Why miss a beautiful day just to find out there was nothing wrong.
Many factors can cause a prop to require replacement, a job that most owners have their boats lifted from the water to complete. However, in most cases this is not necessary. At a fraction of the cost of having your boat lifted and the replacement completed, we will change the prop while in the water.
Anode ( Zinc ) Replacement
This is an unfortunate expenditure to acquire, for such a relatively simple procedure. We will change your Anode without the hassle of having your boat lifted from the water. Usually this is a once a year project and for the boat owners who lift their boats from the water at the end of the season, not a common concern, but when you consider the damage that can be caused by a lack of Anode on the boat, you may not want to wait too long. We will change your Anodes and help assure the proper protection of your hull.
