Two questions for San Diego boaters

I am putting together some information of interest to SF Bay Area boat owners regarding hull cleaning. San Diego boat owner's participation in this poll is appreciated. Thanks.

1.- How often do you have a diver clean your hull?

2.- How frequently do you haul for new paint?

I'm ~60 miles north of SD but the usual around our area is cleaned once a month and hauled and painted every three years, 2 coats Petit Trinidad with a third coat at the waterline. Inside SD bay itself they are either testing or now require low copper paint.
Found this in an article of the log from May 2008,
Quote:
The Port of San Diego, which has mandated a ban of copper-based boat paint in 10 years, implemented an Alternative Hull Paint Project in February to study alternatives to copper-based paints.

San Diego’s two-year project will consist of two testing phases; the first will be on panels and the second on boat hulls. Effectiveness will then be evaluated based on application efficiency, cleaning and maintenance needs, antifouling efficiency, cost and longevity. The project aims to reduce copper input in San Diego Bay, as boaters replace their existing copper-based hull paints with alternative products.
