Chilli Powder anti-fouling

Its that time of the year that small boat owners start anti-fouling their prized possessions, a tip I feel obliged to pass on is to mix a handful of Chilli Powder into the anti-fouling and mix well . The chilli does give a slightly pinkie tint to the colour but it works and you`ll notice the difference in the Autumn when she is hauled out. The anti-fouling will last up to 3 years before repainting, saving quite a few pounds and less time lying under the hull with a roller.
