Tube anti foul

Hi all, first post so here I go.
I am the boats officer for a sea cadet unit and I am having a battle of wills with our chairman.
He uses Hemple marine primer, then Blake's tiger cruising for EVERYTHING. He wants to use this on the tubes of our valiant RIB. I seem to remember from another forum that you have to have a special one for tubes ?
A member of a fishing forum sent me your way for advice.
Many thanks for your time
Dave

Welcome to RibNet
Found the stuff I was talking about on WSF-here

If it's not going to live in the water I wouldn't antifoul it at all though.

Unfortunately she will be in Barry dock for most of the summer being used every other tue or thur and Sundays for about 4 hours a time, so we have no choice really.
It came out after the winter stinking.
Thanks for the link

If it's a hypalon tube key up the underside with a dremmel or something similar and slap the antifoul on with no primer. Tried and tested for three years now on my tender...... works a treat.
