Can you tell me why your gauge will speed up or cut costs for ship owners?

A smooth hull saves money is the message ship operators are being told while paint companies have been introducing new technology and products. Ship operators are (very) confused by all the claims and counter-claims regarding anti-fouling’s. But owners must be able to weigh the cost of hull roughness against the expense and timing of maintenance schemes, an equation requiring detailed understanding of hull roughness and its measurements.
