Hard Antifouling for Removable Rudder

Hi all;

The sailomat windvane I will be installing soon, model 3040, has both an oar and an auxiliary rudder. Both are removable. The oar is made of aluminum, so I imagine I need to use tri-lux or something like that. If I coat the surface with epoxy, is there any reason I cannot use copper based bottom paint?

For the rudder, which is FRP, is there a hard bottom paint that does not lose it's effectiveness be being put in the water, pulled for a month or more, and then put back in service?

Chris
