What's with the slime??

Just bought some bottom paint and will re-coat my hull this wkend.
For interest sake the salesman noted that the xxx Bottomcoat (cheapest option - copier based) could only sit on land for 5 days before the paint would react with the air and start loosing its effectiveness. After a winter (or 18 mo in the case of my boat) the paint is basically useless.
The 'Fiberglass Bottomcoat' was supposed to be good on land for up to 60 days
He claimed the CSC Micron did not react to air at all and could last thru a few seasons.
