McLube said its new Antifoul Alternative Speed Polish was selected by Sail magazine as a category winner in the 2012 Freeman K. Pittman Innovative Awards.

Sail’s awards are longstanding industry awards that recognize and celebrate the best and brightest new ideas in marine-equipment design and build.

The concept for the product came from carefully listening to customers and incorporating their suggestions into a cutting-edge, fully biodegradable product, the company said.

“Our customers asked us to solve the age-old problem of keeping their hulls clean when they’re left in the water for weeks at a time,” McGee Industries president Ward McClatchy said in a statement. “I think we’ve come up with an excellent, environmentally friendly solution that’s already earning industry respect.”

McLube is a division of McGee Industries.

McLube’s new, long-lasting, citrus-based Antifoul Alternative is formulated to keep hulls, or any underwater surface, fast, clean and pristine for weeks, the company said. To quote Sail’s editors, Antifoul Alternative is “a slippery speed polish that impedes marine growth and keeps your hull fair and fast for days and even weeks of in-water use.”
