This video was shot under a boat that had been sitting still for four months, providing the perfect setup for marine growth. Although the fast-growing coral worm was present, the marine growth was not problematic: a wipe with a soft cloth glove is all that is needed to remove it.

When lifting the boat from the water, be sure to keep the area you’re cleaning wet and always use a soft cloth. To keep your Propspeed in good condition, never wipe it down while dry.
