    If I remember the carp were feeding on the algee growing on the bottom of the boat. Don't remember the cure.
    The fries are cold so we gave you extra.

    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.

    Seems like they put something in the water that stopped it
