Anti Graffiti Paint for Antifouling

HI,

has anyone had any experience with using anti graffiti paint to
protect a hull bottom against barnacles? Apparently the main use of this paint is to
create a very slippery surface on walls which stops graffiti from sticking to them. Googling "anti graffiti paint" comes up with a lot of info.

regards

I doubt it'd work very well, as it isn't designed for continuous immersion in water. Also, the glue that barnacles use is amazingly sticky stuff...

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Barnicles stick to whales

It seems like a good idea and may be worth a try. I would do a 'small test' area, just in case. It may actually give the sea weed or algea a better grip. There was a local guy who added halapenea peppers to bottom paint which worked fine in tests for keeping barnicles off. Since I don't hear about it anymore, either the marketing failed or the barnicles won. I'm afraid even good bottom paint won't stick around Marie Sharp's...me, I'm up to 5 drops per bowl of soup or scrambled egg serving and I don't have any barnicles
