If slime is a local problem ... slime accumulation promotes barnacles attaching to ablatives in severe infestation areas. Then Micron Extra or its Pettit equivalent would be (actually is) my choice. You dont need to paint the entire hull with a slime reduction paint ... many in the Carolinas use the 'slime' formula down to ~3 ft. below the waterline ... and 'anything' below that level.
