Antifouling is an important aspect of owning a boat. Every single boat owner has been faced with a decision of what type of antifouling to choose. Would it be better to try traditional biocide paint antifouling or a copper treatment for my boat? Should I give an ultrasonic antifouling system a choice or is scrubbing the best option? A coating based on Teflon or silicon? Or maybe a good old water bath once in a while? Well, it depends. If you want a cheap option, you might go with a simple water bath or hard scrubbing. If effectiveness is your primary concern you will probably choose a strong copper treatment or an antifouling paint. If you want your antifouling to be as effortless as possible, you will want to try an ultrasonic antifouling system, which is famous for its no-fuss patent. An Ultrasonic antifouling system is also, besides water baths or scrubbing, among greener options because it has no impact on the environment around it.
As you might have noticed, there are a number of different antifouling options, but the best one depends on your needs and demands. You need to choose whatever will suit you best. Some people are more concerned with money, some people want to make the world a better place by taking care of the nature around them and some people just do not want to deal with antifouling in the first place. Yes, antifouling is an inconvenience, but unfortunately, it needs to be done regardless of the trouble it causes. Picking the right option might make it a little less frustrating for you. However, if you still dread the thought of needing to antifoul your boat, think about hiring someone to do it for you. It will be more expensive, but at least it will not cost you your sanity.
