What’s everyone doing to control/ prevent the hair from growing on their pot?

Agreed.   We recently pulled 150 of our pots, let them bake for a couple of days, then tapped the, with the power washer and now they are like new again.

I'm only doing 50.. 25 fish for a week or 2 depending on how hot the water is.  The other 25 sit in the boiling sun. Even a old crab shed is bleached to powder. I don't power wash any more.  The tide washes the [curd] away in a day...

For a big time operation, pulling all your pots out to let them soak is a lot of work and money lost.  They could be catching while they are sitting on the beach.  And for that to work you'd need double the pots.  While 600 are fishing you'd need another 600 to dry out.

My idea is to rotate 50 out at a time.   We just had 50 new pots come in today, so now we’re up to 200.

I'd rather dip them or hit them with the pressure washer so they go right back in and start fishing right away.

I wonder if anyone has tried dipping a pot in actual hard (non ablative) bottom paint.

Probably just me but here I think using pot dip/bottom paint is a deterrent.
