Default will a anti ice bubbler keep barnacles from forming on a hull?

im buying a lil donzi type runabout and plan on leaving it in the water behind my house on some weekends and was wondering if a bubbler would help prevent banacles from forming if the water is always moving? any ideas guys, bottom paint is out of the question, thx ratman

Yeah, i don't think the bubbler would make any difference at all. Just buy a small lift. I think they even make davit systems that could handle an 18'er.

Lift should be easy to come by in your area.

Letting any boat with outdrives in salt water does not seem like a great idea to me.

Actually the moving water might make them grow more, they depend on water movement to bring them food

yeah, I've never seen barnacles attached to pilings that were in a current...









...call P offshore for a lift!
