And now for something entirely different.

I dont know how long it sat in the water but the area around the lights was touched up with rustoleum topside paint before dunking. http://www.thehulltruth.com/5289211-post51.html

I have heard of using wrought iron furniture paint. Provides multi year protection.

Teflon-based anti fouling coatings have been available to the recreational boating market for many years. This is nothing new.

Is it efficient for displacement hull that goes at 7 knot in average or more intended for planning hulls where the speed will maintain a clean hull?

These products tend to have poor anti fouling properties and in my neck of the woods, lose their "oomph" in much less than a year, regardless of what boat they are on. In Canada, you maybe would be happier with it. Me? I steer my clients away from them.

I was thinking about my antifouling so my question. As I am in fresh water it is less an issue but still needed. My ride is 7 knots, max 8, so speed will not help at all. When I bought the boat it had a fresh coat of ablative and was very effective, no fouling after 6 months in water, but don't know exactly what it was. I was looking at basic interlux ones as I think it will be just enough for my usage.
