is not an anti-fouling. It will help because it fills in the fissures in the aluminum which makes it harder for the algae to attach. The product that you want is VS721
is a clear, direct to metal, protective coating that bonds chemically to aluminum to prevent staining and oxidation. It will keep your pontoons looking new all summer long, but by itself, it will not prevent fouling.
After you remove the growth with Algex
, brighten the pontoons with Alumabrite
, then clean and prep them with Boat Clean Plus
. They should look new by now.
Apply several coats of Alumetron
by wiping it on with a cloth and let it thoroughly cure for 4 days. Now you can apply 2 coats of VS721
below the waterline. VS721
is so slippery that it’s difficult for anything to stick. If you get some slime, just running the boat will knock it off or you can wipe it clean with a sponge if required. You may have some slime at the end of the season but it will wash off with a sponge and a bit of Boat Clean Plus
will also give you an increase in speed and reduce your fuel consumption.
Thanks for your questionCaptain Aurora.
