Antifoul alternative - boat bags?

Recommended Posts

Came across this crowd,

 

www.dockydock.com

 

is this some new form of snake oil, or could it really be this simple?

 

There do seem to be other crowds around, like www.boatbag.com.au, but they suggest putting some slow release chlorine in there as well. 

 

I've seen the fabdocks as well, but with their fancy fabrics, drain pumps and associated gubbins it seems like a lot of potential failure points

 

Whats the catch I'm missing?

Various versions have been around for years and years. They certainly work at the job of keeping growth off the Hull, but there is no way of keeping growth off the outside of the bag. Try pulling a fouled bag out of the water.

A new Seapen has just been set up for a large vessel down on U pier, Westhaven.

There is something connected to the water tap, which is continuously adding fresh water to the pen. Lucky Westhaven have stopped charging for water!

 

Wheels, their marketing says "SeaPen’s special polymer skin is one of the only materials in existence that resists barnacle growth when kept in Sea Water. No barnacles mean you never need to remove the SeaPen for cleaning."

That looked like Barnacle's growing on the pen thing in the promo photo.
