Cars need to go into the shop every once and a while, why would boats be any different? This stop is the place where boats come for a little TLC. Boats large and little line up to “get on the rack.” After lining up with a pair of tracks on shore, boats then drive in place and get attached to a platform. Once pulled out of the water, the boats start their spa treatment. A maintenance crew scrapes off all the critters, such as barnacles, tube worms and algae, that have attached themselves to the bottom of the boat. Then, they put on a layer of antifouling paint, so sea creatures won’t grow back. After getting their bath and paint job, these boats can take on just about anything!
