Antifauling for tubes

Morning all,

Need to pick on your brains. What is the best antifauling product to use on the the tubes. The normal antifauling will crack as the tubes move about. Thanks in advance.

never heard of any antifauling product for tubes, best advice perhaps is to keep out of water when not in use, try and keep tubes clean and protected with some form of tube protecterant stuff for protection against altraviolet rays etc.

You're a hoot Boris - did you teach sex ed. for the Church at some point? The man wants antifoul - clearly he has a Need that Abstinence won't satisfy!

Lots of rib tubes when moored up by design contact the water, so if kept afloat for any length of time will need some form of protection - otherwise a big weedy, slimy mess will ensue

Thank you all for this information.

Unfortunately, the courier companies will not carry liquids and paints to Malaysia. Would it be possible to mix an antifouling paint with rubber paint and apply to the tubes?
