Forget grinding away on your boat’s hull with a scrubbing pad to get the growth off—attack that gunk with the new PowerShark from Waveblade, Inc. and remove barnacles, scum, and anything else that’s on the surface in seconds. Instead of relying on user effort the PowerShark’s blades oscillate at 3000 rpm and disrupts the chemical bond between your hull and whatever decides to grow on it. Needing only a light touch to get the job done, the PowerShark won’t damage fiberglass, metal, or wood hulls and can even be used on rubber. Each kit comes with a flat chisel blade and standard 3- and 5-inch-wide blades, more than 4 feet of cord, and a battery pack and charger.
Meeting the needs of boaters in the U.S. has some builders around the world scratching their heads, but not Rio Yachts. This Italian builder knows what works and what doesn’t, and adds a creative touch and fine finish to differentiate its product from lots of other boats out there.
