    While reading a salt water magazine last month I came across an article detailing ultrasound and its uses to stop hull fouling. As I did a bit of research it appears to my non-scientific mind that ultrasound might have potential for houseboats on the lake. I'll attach a few links, curious if anyone has looked into this and what you have found? Perhaps cost-prohibitive? I don't keep a boat in the water so for me it is not an issue, just wanted to share.

    I'll add this one just because it is a fascinating read even though it is old:

    Thanks TR. So, I glue my subwoofer to the hull and play rap/hip-hop while I'm not on the boat and I'll be OK, right! :p
