I have a 22 foot nautica with twin outboards and i keep it in lake Ontario from May till October. Even though it is fresh water there is quite a bit of bottom growth and i like to apply antifouling. Does anyone know what antifouling you can use on the tubes that are in contact with the water. The tubes are made of hypalon.Click image for larger version

There are specific paints available for tubes, here's a link for something you could try.
SP54 Hypalon Antifoul grey for inflatable boats, dinghy and RIBs

In my area, most boats are kept on swinging moorings in tidal creeks. A lot of rib owners just use the same antifoul paint on both their hulls and their tubes. Not sure how good that is for the boats in the long run but people don't seem to have any issues with it. Personally we don't bother antifouling the tubes, we just scrub them every two weeks. It only takes 20 minutes or so and it keeps the tubes looking nice.
