Tom-N-Jerrys Boat Center often tells customers that it is important that they apply anti-fouling paint to their boats, especially if they want to avoid many of the issues that could affect their boat’s performance levels or cause it damage over the long-term. The following are all benefits of applying quality anti-fouling paint.
As gunk and grime accumulates on the hull of your boat, you are often going to find that it experiences a drop-off in performance levels. This means that you boat ends up slower on the water, which can be irritating for people who have purchased faster boats because they want to really let lose when they are boating. Anti-fouling paint will ensure such sediment and slime doesn’t have the chance to accumulate, thus offering you higher levels of performance.
Decreased Fuel Consumption
If your boat is struggling to push through the water because there is a lot of gunk on the hull, your engines are going to have to work harder to get it moving at the proper speed. This will usually mean that you end up burning through a lot of fuel. Applying anti-fouling paint can save you a lot of money over the course of the boat’s life.
A Healthier Hull
Tom-N-Jerrys Boat Center notes that some marine growth is actually capable of causing direct damage to your boat, as it can end up boring into the hull and creating cracks that result in the boat dropping in performance or even losing its seaworthiness. Good anti-fouling paint will prevent this from happening.
