from personal experiance w/ Vivid, above the waterline white will change color and unless your willing to dive on the boat weekly it's not going to stay white. Ablatives work on powerboats but not so much on sailboats.
We have just stripped our bottom and gone to a hard paint because of new eco restrictions and me wanting to scrub the bottom in our slip.
