Slimed again!

The 2000E barrier coat that is now 1.5 yrs on the boat is great! I've always used generic bottom paint (wm) and that's mostly still on the bottom too. there are areas that have peeled off due to the non stick qualities of the barrier coat. Easy to fix by spring.
The prices of some bottom paints are way way up there and I've never seen a river moored boat without slime build up. Some of the racers really spend big $s on VC17 and others types of high end bottom coatings. But, by season's end.. we are "slimed" To give you an idea how slimey our river is; When a trailered boat is left at the dock a couple of days.. it's already slimed!

Is there really any bottom paint that will prevent this?
