Shipowners are only too aware of the direct relationship between the roughness of a ship's hull and the cost of sailing the vessel at her designed economic speed. This article discusses the development of highly successful self-polishing antifoulings, the best of which can keep a hull smooth and free of fouling for up to five years.
