Help wanted how to protect my RIB

Coming season my RIB will stay in a marina. I used to have my SIB in the marina on a angled wooden climber (or how do I call this...?)
My RIB will need to stay in the water, and I will only take it out when I go further away with my trailer.
The question is, how do I protect my RIB against algee etc..?

All ideas are more then welcome!

Thanks, Vincent.

If you have a hard bottom you can use ordinary antifoul, if a softie then there are inflatable boat antifouls available too.

I'm thinking of using normal antifoul for the hard bottum of my RIB, but I've no idea what I can use for protection of the tubes....

And if I take my RIB out of the water every month and clean up the part which has been in the water non stop, will I even need any antifoul then?
My RIB is in fresh water all the time, only in salt for a day or so.
