Antifoul for hypalon tubes

The back of my tubes are in the water and as the rib is permanently afloat they get weedy very quickly. Does anybody know of an antifoul that works.

Been discussed here before:

The solution to antifouling tubes

I use and highly reccommend SafeBoatSkin on tubes and hull.

I have the same problem with my Cobra. I have been Emailing Polymarine - they manufacture a new antifouling specifically for the job. They do not have ANY info however. I have emailed them a couple of times requesting that they email me an instruction leaflet, copy of a label off a tin or anything which gives more info. They replied that they did not have anything which I find rather suspicious. Marine Superstore at Port Solent who are Polymarine stockists were very helpful but searched their files and couldnt even find a reference to the product, let alone any info.

Polymarine must have a spec sheet and I am sure some test data. It seems rather odd that they are so reluctant to share it.........
