James City County is pleased to announce that Board Sports, Etc. doing business as Eelsnot Marine Coatings (Eelsnot) celebrated its grand opening and ribbon cutting on May 20 for its location at 7521 Richmond Rd. Ste. #F-C. Eelsnot produces and distributes eco-friendly hydrophobic compounds that shield boat surfaces from direct contact with water and retards marine growth and reduces fuel consumption by decreasing drag. Eelsnot also services the application of their product to equipment by appointment.
Eelsnot is made for watermen by watermen. It is designed to keep mariners in their element and not in the laborious task of cleaning, scraping and/or fixing investments. Also, Eelsnot is designed to reducing the carbon footprint being left in waterways.
Eelsnot can also be used for board sports and kayaks. It protects wood, copper, aluminum, fiberglass, epoxy, gel coat, rubber, polypropylene, and nearly any other surface for four to six months. A 20 ounce tub of Eelsnot will cover a 30 ft. boat through two applications, which is 12 to 18 months of protection.
Eelsnot is owned by Toby West and Cherry Rose. The company was founded in 2006 as a home-based business in James City County. The Office of Economic Development assisted Eelsnot in locating to a commercial location.
