OK, I'm curious. How do you apply a coat and a half?

I'm also curious about the reports of folks cleaning the bottom of their boats. I have never done that, harboring the belief that the paint is ablative and cleaning it shortens the life. Whenever I have sort of casually rubbed the paint I get a cloud of color in the water which strengthens the belief. Are the paints that get cleaned non-ablative? Or am I missing something more fundamental?
