in the serene waters of Lake Norman, Tennessee, Freedom Boat Club was looking for a solution for pontoon protection. Their vessel of choice was Ships Ahoy, a Bennington SX22. Not only did Hull Pro deliver on protection, but it also proved performance benefits for Ships Ahoy!

ENHANCED PROTECTION FOR IMPROVED PERFORMANCE

Freedom Boat Club sought a reliable solution to enhance performance and simplify maintenance for Ships Ahoy. Hull Pro emerged as the obvious choice. Freedom Boat Club Lake Norman's decision to choose Hull Pro for Ships Ahoy was grounded in the following four key points:

  • MINIMAL FOULING CHALLENGES

    Ships Ahoy encountered only light, soft fouling on its hull 30 days post-Hull Pro application, making cleaning a straightforward task without the need for harsh chemicals or scraping. A simple wipe-down with a wet microfiber cloth and occasional use of a gas-powered pressure washer for stubborn growth sufficed.

    ENVIRONMENTAL BENEFITS

    Hull Pro's biocide-free formula aligns with Freedom Boat Club's commitment to eco-friendly practices. The absence of harmful biocides means the protection of Ships Ahoy's hull comes without detrimental impacts on aquatic life or the surrounding environment.

  • EXTENDED PERFORMANCE LIFESPAN

    Hull Pro's robust protective layer ensures longevity, reducing the need for frequent touch-ups and ensuring the pontoon remains protected throughout its lifespan.

    VERSATILE APPLICATION

    Hull Pro's ease of application streamlined the protection process for Freedom Boat Club Lake Norman. Applicators found it straightforward and safe, simplifying the hull protection procedure.

With Hull Pro in place, Freedom Boat Club Lake Norman enjoyed a hassle-free experience, free from the constant upkeep typically associated with hull protection. This simplicity allowed them to focus on what mattered most – enjoying the open waters of Lake Norman.
