Why Should I be on a Hull Maintenance Schedule?

Along with hauling your boat and getting paint renewed, a boats paint needs to be maintained regularly to avoid heavy growth and make sure your underwater metal is protected with sacrificial anodes. If growth over accumulates on anti fouling paint than a diver will have to use a more abrasive technique to remove the growth, which in turn will harm the paint as well. A typical frequency for a hull cleaning is every 60 or 90 days depending on your type of paint or lack of paint it can be as little as every 14 days. Some race boats prefer a schedule of every 30 days or on a “race schedule” the day before each race to maximize the hull speed potential. Protecting and extending the longevity of your hull paint can extend the time between haul outs by a year or more.
More important than maintaining your paint, is monitoring and protecting your running gear and underwater metals. Replacing propeller(s) and/or propeller shaft(s) can be costly and this can happen by not properly maintaining and protecting them by regularly installing sacrificial anodes. These protect the metal under the water by being sacrificially corroded preventing corrosion of the more important metals. These are a very vital necessity and should be monitored and changed regularly.

Inboard / Outboard (“I/O” or “Outdrive”) drives are extremely susceptible and very sensitive to the salt water environment. If they are not cared for by installing anodes regularly, they can be a heavy cost to replace or repair. These types of drive systems Also incur and extra cost to get cleaned due to the contours and details of them.
