I am including 4 photos . (2 emails)The photos are of my 26 foot 1988 formula. I purchased the barnaclerid system in November of 2019 and began using it on a freshly painted bottomed boat. The photos represent that boat after 6 months of sitting in water temperature in southwest Florida ranging from 74 to 82 degrees Fahrenheit. The boat was only used 8 days in that timeframe . As you can see from the photo just a little green slime on the hull. The sterndrives do have some issues but not bad as in the past.
It should also be noted that prior to purchasing the barnaclerid system this boat on a freshly painted bottom had barnacles from one end to the other. The hull was covered and the stern drives were severely impacted. So much so that the boat could barely move through the water. And it was only a 4 month period of time!
Using the barnaclerid system to me has paid off big time. I lost no power with the boat comfortable cruising at 26 knots @ 3300 RPMs. To say the least I am very satisfied..
note by barnacleRID:
After seeing the photos Don have sent us we have advised him to move the electrodes from the corners of the stern closer to the stern drive where they would be installed normally as per user manual to achieve better results on the drives themselves, however it is a harder to protect as with tidal or current wave action the drives are going in and out of the water.
