  • Barnacles

    Hi Crownie People. Greetings from England. We have just hauled out our 210 for wintering and the barnacle infestation was obvious. All over the hull and the Penta outdrive. We noticed the difference in the speed in the latter part of the season. She was treated with top quality anti-fouling which kept the weed at bay, but not the barnies. She is moored in mainly brackish water, and used mainly in the salt of the English Channel. Does anyone have any ideas please.

    Honestly that looks better than a bunch of boats that sit in water over here on the other side of the pond.

      Is there any way to moor the boat on a lift to keep it out of the water when not in use?

        Welcome to the HQ sir. Looks like she'll need some scrubbing but thats pretty typical if it was moored in the water. I owned a 210 CCR for 10 years. It was a great boat for the stage of our boating lives. My wife and I used it pre-kids to overnight on. If you have any specific questions or problems post them up.
