How To Clean A Boat Hull

I just stumbled across this video on YouTube of a way to give your boat hull a damn good cleaning.
I like the idea of it and although I would expect it has some limitations due to the leverage and accessibility, it could be rather handy.
It would probably be even handier if you had clear water but hey ho.

The Scrubbis works well I have had one for 3 years the whole boat can be done in about 10 mins no need to move the boat off the mooring due to the angle and adjustable length of the handle it can all be done from the deck and yes due to the positive bouyancy of the head it really holds itself to the hull, they are not cheap though mine cost me £80 3 years ago and is wearing well I use it a couple of times a month through the season, it folds down into short lengths (3 pieces ) and I keep it in the boat under the transom seat.

That's good to know. Won't abrasive barnacles wreck it though?

No the scrubbis has a reversible head, foam ribbed on one side for removing algie and a plastic blade on the other side of the head for removing crustations, and you can get replacement blades & heads if needed, the plastic blade does not apare to damage the hull or antifoul, I have used the plastic side to remove some stubborn water staining around the water line and it worked well
