Ships and boats suffer severely from the growth of barnacles and weeds on the hull called “fouling”
The maximum speed of a vessel decreases as its hull becomes fouled with marine growth. Some marine growth, such as shipworms can actually bore into the hull causing severe damage over time.
Anti-fouling paint is a specialised coating applied to the hull of a ship or boat to reduce the growth of subaquatic organisms.
