I antifoul my boat every two years. I normally use Cruiser uno, and have been happy with it. I am now considering using a copper antifoul. It's much more expensive, but claims to last 9 years. Is this true. If you have used this on your boat I would be very interested in hearing how you rate it.
Also is it ok to use on an old boat? Ie 15 years old.

Antifoul every year or two versus every 14 years
Jonty Pearce writing in Yachting Monthly owns a Southerly 105 which with its lifting keel is kept on a drying mooring. After slurry blasting the bottom, he applied four coats of epoxy followed by four coats of a metal laced epoxy product called Coppercoat which claims to provide 14 years weed free antifouling. An alternative to hauling out every year or two maybe?
