What you can do
Keep your boat cleaned and well maintained to ensure a hassle free cruising holiday:
  • Thoroughly cleaning your hull before you leave your home port is the best approach.

  • Remember some councils have rules about cleaning your boat in the water. 

  • Choose the right antifoul for the way you use your boat, and keep it fresh.

  • Keep your haulout/antifoul receipts onboard to provide as evidence of recent treatment or lift and wash
