    Unique Tool Gets Rid of Barnacles Easily

    Barnacles and growth on pilings, docks and seawalls can very easily scratch, gouge and damage a boat, but removing them can be backbreaking work. Shurhold’s innovative Barnapole barnacle removal tool helps boaters more easily scrape barnacles, oysters, mussels and other crustaceans from seawalls and dock pilings. This helps protect the value of the vessel.

    The Barnapole features curved and flat scraper blades made from solid stainless steel. The handle attachment block is made from a solid aluminum extrusion. This combination of stainless steel and aluminum allows the Barnapole to withstand harsh marine environments.

    Engineered specifically for pilings and seawalls, the Barnapole can remove up to 9″ of buildup with each pass, saving owners time and money. Those who’ve used a shovel or spade in the past know it will only remove about an inch or so of growth with each pass. This method can also lead to gouging the piling. Barnapole is designed to be used from the top of a dock, so there is no need for users to get in the water.

    The Original Barnapole easily attaches to any standard threaded pole, such as a paint roller or broom handle. The Shurhold Barnapole easily attaches to any Shurhold handle. There is no handle included with either unit. Both the Original Barnapole and the Shurhold Barnapole cost $39.98 each.
