Today, on the Baltic Sea Day, we would like to thank those who, with their own example, are contributing to change and those who have decided to switch to a non-toxic alternative to keep the bottom of the boat clean.
Antifouling and hull friction are among the most crucial factors affecting the boat’s performance, driving characteristics and fuel economy.
In 2016 Seaboost was the jury’s favorite of a total of almost 100 environmental projects that competed for the Baltic Sea project’s support. The reason is that the biocides used in antifouling paints are a serious and permanent environmental problem for marine life. A Swedish survey also shows that antifouling paints are one of the worst sources of microplastics that come into our waters.
