Law Changes in the US

From a client recently on the Puget sound USA with surrounding Cities Seattle, Tacoma, Washington, Olympia, Everett, Bremerton. Thanks for sharing James

A law that was passed in 2010, thanks to our governor and her infinite wisdom, will go into effect In 2020 that will ban copper bottom paints in our state. As you probably have seen this happening across the United States and around the globe. Recreational boaters will get slammed hard with this one, in only a few years. Bottom fouling will be horrible without copper, requiring frequent haul-outs and cleanings. The technology savvy will turn to electrolytic anti-fouling. In our marina, we recently (in the last couple years) got an infestation of mussels. Pacific blue mussels. If they were bigger, we could just eat them. They’re tiny and plentiful, and real pest. They’re everywhere. If you reach in the water near the docks, you’ll get cut. They’re on almost everyones trim tabs and exhaust pipes. Like most mollusks, the only way to get rid of them is to physically remove them (scrape or pressure wash). I did some research, and found that copper ions will deter them from settling, and will starve the ones that have already set up shop. Copper is an appetite suppressant for mollusks. bon appétit mussels, enjoy your last meal. I can’t wait to see them gone. James

Feedback from Florida

From South Florida thanks for the excellent feed back Holly

Hi Shane,

Just thought I’d take a moment to thank you for selling a product that actually does what it is supposed to.

My 42’ Cruisers Esprit has been in the very warm waters of South Florida since September of last year when I took it out of Dry Dock.. Along with a lot of TLC at the dry dock, it also got a brand new bottom paint in anticipation of using your product. I’ve had your system on it since then till now, a full 6 months. Have a look at the photos for yourself…pretty impressive Sir.

Cheers, Holly

Feedback from the Northern Territory, Australia

Latest news, Rick purchased Barnaclerid in December 2013 and writes to us below.

” Barnacle Rid has exceeded my expectations. Having a boat permanently moored in our warm waters in the Top End I experienced significant barnacle & algae growth on the hull of my 28ft Sea Ray each year. After fitting Barnacle Rid & slipping my boat for some engine & leg maintenance some 18 months later, I and the marine mechanic were amazed at how clean the hull was.

Definitely a great investment.

Recommend this product to everyone that has a boat permanently in the water

kind regards

Tip of the month from a long time Barnacle Rid user

To help keep your barnaclerid cables and electrode tops clean,simply coat them with vasaline/petroleium jelly, it makes it much easier to keep weed off them.
we tried It and it works thanks for the tip.


Feedback from lake Macquarie



News below from Airlie Beach, North Queensland of Australia

A tropical paradise for tourists 🙂 and barnacles 🙁 alike

A long term Barnacle Rid user (over 5 years) on a 64 foot steel cruiser. His words below:

“I dived on the boat yesterday and to my expectation and pleasure once again the boat was completely free of barnacles ,there were a couple on the water line which I used a plastic scraper on and they came off easily, the boat has been here for over 2 years.

The boat next door to me has only been here for 4 months and is covered in barnacles and heavy growth so fantastic and thanks.”

He also said the guy next door will call you.

Great news and thanks for calling to let us know.

Feedback from Victoria, Australia

This Tradewinds 42 (see two photos below) straight out of the water no blast after over 19 months since last antifoul, no barnacles on the hull whatsoever,a few on the bottom bow and prop,considering this boat hardly ever moves and is on its wharf for months at a time its a great result and the owner who sent these photos is extermly pleased .

Feedback from Dubai on a catamaran

Barnacle Rid is clearly working already, see report below

Has been about 6 weeks in.

Here in Dubai we get barnacles growth in one week. you can get 8mm in about 10 days I have seen 10mm in summer.

The hull and running gear is perfectly clean still not one barnicle or worm growth. Will inspect on a monthly and see how it’s going but clearly already is a great result.

Just sent this card, thanks Adrian.
We very much appreciate the thought. Adrian started with our barnaclerid mono hull 2 electrode system, protecting his 48 foot cruiser from barnacles, for many years. Now Adrian has up dated his vessel to a 60 foot Princess and runs our 4 electrode large vessel Barnaclerid protection system. Adrian is also happy to speak with any prospective clients on his experience with us, just ask and we will forward his contact details. We share with you his card below,thanks again.

Barnacle Rid Celebrates 7 Years

Latest Feedback from a Happy Client

From Bribie Islands which is strong Barnacle growth area.

Hi Shane
Now that I have had the Barnaclerid fitted for some 19 months, I thought you might be interested in its performance.
The boat is moored in Southern Queensland in an area well known for its barnacle problems.  A local diver has cleaned the bottom twice and on his recommendation the boat has not been slipped, thus saving me two lifts.  After the last clean, the diver stated he was a little disappointed as this time he found seven soft barnacles and the time before, only five. Needless to say I am delighted with the performance of the Barnaclerid system.

Permanent dock installation, Barnacle Rid Marina System with shore power.
To Whom it may concern
We have been using the Barnacle Rid system on our dock where we keep our CABO 52 in Singapore ( See Pic below) and are very pleased with the results. We have been using it for two years now and do not have issues with barnacles any more. We still have to contend with green weed growth at the water line however do not have to clean off barnacles which was a once a week affair due to rapid and immense growth in our waters. The key to using this successfully is to follow the instructions carefully for installation and boat preparation as well.

Bob – Hervey Bay QLD

Update Latest news July 2015
It’s been 22 months since my last anti foul with no bottom clean since. Apart from some slime and weed, there was absolutely no shell or barnacle growth to be found.The benefits have been in saving money on costly maintenance and poor performance so saving fuel as well. Thanks Barnaclerid. Regards Bob

NEWS from a cruising Forum in Cheasapeake Bay Florida U.S.A

We came across this from May 2015 when searching for any comments on Barnacle Rid , finding a Barnacle Rid client user of over 12 months.
See the two threads below, we were impressed also.
Re: barnacle rid in Australia
I’ve got a St. Francis 50 right in front of me on the tee . I’ll ask him how its working when I see him. His cat does look pretty clean from what I can see…

Re: barnacle rid in Australia
Ok, talked to him today and asked him if he thought the barnaclerid system was working. He’s just as curious as I am. Turns out he had a diver come in yesterday to retrieve an eisenglas panel that went overboard. He had the diver check the bottom and the diver reported that he found two barnacles on one of the saildrive props but could find no hard growth anywhere else. He did say there was a light coating of soft growth that brushed right off. The system was installed a year ago this month and the boat has been on the Cheasapeake Bay the whole time. So, there you go. It seems the system is working on his boat..

Feedback from River Heads, Queensland AU

Hi Shane

I’ve had the 4 electrode Barnacle Rid system on our 40ft x 15ft power catamaran since it was launched 18 months ago. After owning a houseboat for many years and dreading the annual barnacle scrape on the slipway I was told about your product by a very satisfied Barnacle Rid user and decided to install the system on our new catamaran. Well after 12 months on a swing mooring in some pretty harsh conditions (1 mtr high waves, 5 knot running tides) there were almost no barnacles on hulls just a few on both bows  due to electrodes being out of water in waves and they basically fell off anyway. A couple of months ago both bow electrodes became tangled with the mooring ropes and were pulled from boat so the Barnacle Rid system wasn”t working. Well proof the system works, after 6 weeks of no protection top speed of 21 knots down to 10 knots and I spent 4 hours on a sand bar scraping  off stuck barnacles.Thanks Shane for your swift service in sending me 2 new electrodes and ongoing advice. I wont be without them again.

Another happy Barnaclerid client in Darwin, Northern Territory, AU

After over 2 years From Darwin Australias Top end. with very high water temperatures barnaclerid has been Installed on a 53 foot Riviera cabin cruiser, below correspondence is from the happy owner.

Hi Shane,

 FYI did not need to put new electrodes into action yet as still enough on the old ones.

Also pulled the boat out after 2 years plus sitting in water with over a year of not moving.

Hull was clean and only slight build up on props and rudders but overall good result given no movement.

Thanks and regards


Feedback from Sydney

48 foot Catamaran owner, Brian M

To whom it may concern
We fitted a 4 probe Barnaclerid system to our catamaran after antifouling last September. So far so good. A recent dive reported no barnacles.

We recently had an operational problem with our unit. It turned out to be operator  error and nothing to do with the system. However on first contact Shane assumed the unit had failed even though he must have suspected it was our fault and booked a courier to deliver a replacement control box the next day. After numerous phone calls the cause of the problem was traced to our error. All through the time Shane was very courteous and quick to respond to messages. He never once made me feel stupid (even though I might be) and always treated me as an important customer. Full marks for customer service and after 6 months full marks for the system.

Our boat lives in Pittwater in Sydney and if you want to contact me through Shane I would be more than glad to discuss Barnaclerid with you and show you it working.
