Pesky barnacles and growth on pilings, docks and seawalls best beware of Shurhold’s Barnapole. The barnacle-removal device helps boaters scrape oysters, mussels and other crustaceans from seawalls and dock pilings, so they can’t scratch or damage a boat. Using curved and flat scraper blades made from solid stainless steel, the Barnapole can remove up to 9 inches of buildup with each pass. Barnapole is designed to be used from the top of a dock, so there is no need for users to jump in the water. It attaches to any Shurhold handle.

Title: Clean pilings

Should have mentioned that I've been cleaning my pilings for years and it really works. My neighbors pilings are a mess with barnacles while mine look clean and new even though they are 11yrs old.
Docks are a huge investment and I want mine to last as long as possible. That's why intake care of mine.

Title: Why?

To extend the life of the piling, to save your boats gel coat, to avoid getting cut to shreds while swimming near a dock, for fishing.
These are a few reasons I can think of. I'm sure there are more.
