I am going to be keeping my boat in the water this summer season and would like some advise on antifouling.

I have been gived Veneziani Gummipaint for the tubes and some Veneziani antifoul. has anybody ever used these? I will be using the boat everyday and have heard that iI might not need to antifoul?

Anti foul

I have used both products and the tube stuff came off after 10 minutes! Mine stays in all season and I got so fed up with scrubbing I anti fouled it last year. I am having some black panels put on at the moment where the tubes are in the water as the weed does not frow on the black bits already on the boat .

Charles why do you advise against ? bit late for me but would like to know .
