Stop the carp & fish from banging on our houseboat
How to stop the carp & fish from eating the algae off the bottom of our houseboat? The banging drives me crazy!
Thanks, Rebecca. Reply - Answer
Well Rebecca, I can sympathize with your dilemma since the sound of fish & carp banging or feeding on the algae can definitely drive someone nuts.
One of the best products that I found that helps to eliminate the problem is to apply a special anti fouling bottom paint
to the hull. This bottom paint with Irgarol is especially good on the algae and bottom growth, which will really help to provide much less of a feeding area for the fish or carp.
If you have a sense of humor, I can recommend having a party with many friends, and bring out the fishing rods, and have a "fish BBQ" :)
Joking aside, I know what's it's like to have them banging on your hull, and I found that this bottom paint really helped to let me have a great night's sleep.
Lastly, hopefully some of our readers will share and post comments about their fish & carp feeding on their houseboat hull experiences.
