yes pollution is the whole problem. If you just want to lift your boat for storage i am sure a system could be mabe to work (would be very costly) but if you were to use it to scrub of any bottom paint i am sure it would raise issues with the authorities.

Regarding bottom Paint I do not understand why anybody would still would use a ablative antifouling while there are a couple of good alternatives that last over 10 years. we have been using coppercoat for over 10 years and it works great. once a year cleaned just go into the water and clean it and once every 5 years a light sand with waterproof to expose the copper once more. it saves a lot over its 15 years that it will work.
Coppercoat - multiseason antifouling. 10 years protection hard wearing copper filled epoxy resin copper antifoul antifouling.
