Could the Drive-in Boatwash be The Solution?

Does this strike anyone else as a good solution to the bottom paint problem? I certainly wouldn’t mind going into a “boatwash” every 4-12 weeks (recommended intervals), and for sure before every big race! The Swedish company Drive-in Boatwash™  is producing these units. The Clean Boating Foundation has a nice post on the company here

    Seems like something Eliott bay marina should have?

      I sure think so. How much better would it be to have no bottom paint leaching off 24/7, or coming off in clouds when the diver goes down? Of course getting something like this up and running would be a chore, but it seems like a worthwhile one.
