Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] thru hull maintenance

I use a bit of HCL, close the sea cock and pour a small quantity in the basket. Wait 15 minutes open the sea cock and.. the growth should be gone...

Just wondering if anyone can provide some pointers or methods used that they practice to maintain thru hulls. Particularly, the main sea strainer in the engine room. Had some growth that was restricting water flow and I had to clear out a bunch of mussels and jellies. I got really technical and used a dowel I had laying around. Flow was restored however it brings this issue to mind. No big deal, just wondering if anyone had any trick they use to prevent grow or remove when necessary. 

Many thanks,
