Some of you lod timers on here may remember a thread about carp banging the bottom of boats and there was finally a cure it. Does anyone remember what it was? Thanks

If I remember the carp were feeding on the algee growing on the bottom of the boat. Don't remember the cure.

the only boats on our docks that are bothered by carp are the ones with no bottom paint,those who have it are left in peace.

My problem isn't carp but manatees... not sure if they're cleaning the bottom or scratching their backs, but it gets interesting.

There is not a cure - other than having a very clean boat bottom.

Get a diver to clean the bottom.

Seems like they put something in the water that stopped it

we pull out in late October every year for the winter and power wash the bottom then.
