If it doesn't say "suitable for constant immersion" or something similar, odds are that spending months in contact with water is going to degrade something.

Ask the maker, because that can be an expensive mistake to fix.

I don't think any of those of products are cheap. It cost about $250 in 1999 to cover my pickup bed (8ft) plus sides. A one quart can for "touch up" costs about $15. Plus, as was pointed out above, it has no biocide or algacide. I cannot see how one would benefit. What would be the cost for enough Interlux 2000 to cover a 37 foot full keel boat? Is the the cost savings worth diving about every third or fourth day to clean the hull?

any problems with Rhino liner for use on marine environments?
The OP asked about using it for a barrier coat, not bottom paint...big difference.

It has been used for years in enginerooms , but I've yet to hear favorable reports of it's use elsewhere.
