Prevention is much better than cure

Once you have got barnacles on the hull of your boat it's very hard to get an ultra-smooth surface again - even when you do scrape off the exoskeletons, much of the tenacious adhesive will remain. So don't wait too long after your launch to begin your prevention. Spend some time under your vessel with a mask and a sponge every few weeks, this should keep your vessel in tip top shape until your next anti-fouling.

Wax around the waterline

When polishing your vessel's hull it is often worth applying an extra layer of wax around the waterline, this discourages growth and pollutants staining your gelcoat.
