Boat Transport and Anti-Fouling ...

So many questions.......I hope I don't be to painful we are are new to sailing and boats so I have about 1000 questions in my head right now.
I try to ask only the intelligent ones.....hmmm
Our boat ( H28) has had antifouling done 4 month ago. Now it is going on a truck 1200km to Brisbane. I have been told that the antifouling should be re-done because it has been out of the water for some days ( maybe 5)
I don't mind doing it and it might be smart to do it while out of the water anyway but what would you think?

Five days won't hurt ya. The anti foul getting rubbed off by the pads will.

The maximum dry exposure time will depend upon which particular anti-fouling you've used.
