California Invaders
Here is the first of three photos Kim Webb took of a zebra-mussel-infested boat that came into California last spring. From this angle the boat looks clean.
The boat bottom was clean, but zebra mussels were thick under the trim tabs. You can see the trim tabs in the photo above of the rear of the vessel. They are sagging slightly.

This close-up photo is what you could see if you peered under the trim tab. Zebra mussels can be seen attached to the bottom of the boat between the trim tabs and the hull.
