Well, this all sounds very good. 

 

Interesting that John B says Opua has a bad barnacle problem....I want to keep my boat there one day, but alas a 6-7 hour round trip while I am working in Auckland means its not really fusible.  If they started the trains up again then might be a different story.

Not just John B, and the Northland Council are trying to pretend that it doesnt exist -the proof is out there just ask anyone who has spent more than two days in the Bay during the last two years. In particular the antifoul companies are well aware -because of all the new complaints.

If the salinity doesnt vary why did they recommend after testing at Westpark years ago that people throw salt into their toilets to enable the Electrosan 's to work as designed ?

Perhaps you should direct that question to "them"!

And they are worried about fan worm finding it's way into the BOI.

I don't know, I don't use an electrosan and I don't keep a boat in Westpark.

 

Did your electrosan work after throwing salt in it. Maybe you were too hydrated (from drinking too many chilled beverages) and there weren't enough ions in your pee to make the electrosan get its ergs from its anode to its cathode?

 

Or maybe electrosans aren't that great and the salt thing was a distraction. 

 

You do realise electosans aren't used for antifouling?

Not enough fan worms to clean the water.

I dived on Provincial Cowboy in Opua few years back when they were there for Bay week. They had only been in the marina a few days and had plenty of little barnacles on a freshly cleaned bottom. Nasty little beasts.
