This is why...

...Kalessin made slow progress from Badalona to Blanes:


Sam spent one day last week worrying at the back of his mind about whether he had remembered to turn the sea-cocks off before leaving the boat... then he remembered that Kalessin is out of the water.

Amazing fouling! I presume not anti-fouled. How long in the water since last clean? Have you tried lanolin? We are trying ordinary grease this year (in the Orwell). Usually we anti-foul, as do about half the boats in our yard.

Yes, impressive, isn't it? In the water from June 2007 to May 2008, and mostly static in Badalona Marina. The prop itself wasn't antifouled but the p-bracket was, and was nearly as badly fouled.

Not sure about next year, Hopefully a few weeks in the fresh water of the French canals will remove all remaining wildlife and it will be back to the Orwell by this autumn, hooray!
