My bad, this product was introduced in 2007. I'm slow and so is my boat.

As more locations place limits on hazardous materials in their waters and marinas are more careful with run-off from hull cleaning, products like this may become optimal.

International Paint also has a companion product "Intersleek 7180 Linkcoat", that can be applied over a biocide paint.

I have not checked cost, but for bottom coats, labor is usually the major factor.
