All boating enthusiasts know the effects of a fouled hull. Marine growth on the hull of your boat is all to common, and not only devaluing your prized asset it will cost you more money in the long run. Instead of a smooth, clean hull slipping through the water, marine growth creates drag, reducing speed. Placing extra demand on engines to maintain speed while increased fuel consumption, an added cost regardless of vessel size.Fouling is the result of marine growth, a constant process, which begins between one and four months. Fouling occurs even on a newly painted hull treated with the best toxic paints. If left unchecked growth continues until the anti-fouling coat is penetrated, the seal coat, finally the hull itself is damaged.Tests show a fouled hull can increase fuel cost by more than 15% - 20%. Just removing an inch of growth from your hull will greatly increase your mileage therefore, possibly saving you hundreds or even thousands of dollars. Can you afford this? On the other hand, can you afford dry-docking every six months or even yearly? A and C Dive Services provides a cost effective alternative through our frequent underwater cleaning services.

PROP Inspections and Replacement
The occasional grounding is an unfortunate but far to familiar occurrence. In most cases this causes little if any damage. However, not all are as lucky as this may cause serious damage to the hull and or prop. Owners want to know, and are willing to pay for their boat to be lifted from the water to confirm the condition. This can prove to be a costly experience, and is not uncommon to have it happen more than once a year. For a fraction of the cost, we will confirm your boats condition and have you on your way in no time.
