There are many modern solutions available for responsible boat owners that want to take a good care of their vessels. They cover many areas of boat maintenance and operation and offer various results. One of the most prominent and promising ways to include ultrasonic technology in nautical use is antifouling, which is a big nuisance and even a serious problem that requires an effective solution.
Fouling is unavoidable, even with basic care. The only effective preventive measures are modern antifouling solutions that rely on ultrasonic technology to keep the marine life off the vessel’s hull. Ultrasonic boat antifouling is in general one of the best ways to keep your boat in shape and ready for use. It is also very beneficial for the boat’s performance, fuel efficiency, and even costs of use. It is true that there are costs connected with the purchase and installation of ultrasonic boat antifouling systems, but those are overshadowed by all the benefits that are prominent even after years of use.
Ultrasonic boat antifouling can be done quite easily with DIY kits or with professional installation. The kits consist of ultrasonic transducers and control panel, with other equipment included (cables, adhesives, tools …). Properly installed ultrasonic antifouling system will propagate ultrasonic waves through the hull and create tiny vortices on the surface of the hull, disrupting the nesting grounds of the invasive marine life and thus providing an effective preventive or active antifouling measure.
Ultrasonic technology is a great investment. Even if the costs are initially rather high, in thousands of dollars, the value is unbeatable. The ultrasonic system will last you for years to come, with manufacturers offering at least five years of worry-free warranty for quality products. Combine this with amazing effects and convenient features and you have a kit that is hard to turn down.
