Are barnacles, muscles and other hard-shell growth damaging your paint?

Have your sacrificial zinc anodes been forgotten and now your running gear and propeller are corroding?

How often should my boat hull be cleaned?

Cleaning the hull often means using the softest cleaning pads which makes your anti fouling paint last longer. Neglecting hull cleaning means more abrasive brushes and scraping tools will need to be used when you finally do get it cleaned. The ideal cleaning for your paint in the San Francisco Bay Area is every 2 months. This ensures your bottom paint job can last three years or more, as opposed to only two years with infrequent and harsh cleaning.


But let's take a look at the math for a 36' sailboat over 10 years:

painted every 3 years

2 Month Cleaning

$3000 bottom paint job x 3 = $9,000

$108 hull cleaning (6 times/year x 10) = $6,480

Total Cost over 10 years = $15,480

3 Month Cleaning

painted every 2 years

$3000 bottom paint job x 5 = $15,000

$108 hull cleaning (4 times/year x 10) = $4,320

Total Cost over 10 years = $19,320

Total Savings of $3,840!
