While googling for antifouling I came across this. Details on their site Qia Services / Qia b.v. Clean&Protect, Klokken, Premium, en...

Has anybody ever used this product?
I must admit that I feel tempted.

skipperaris, I looked at the site. Not a whole lot of info, but it seems to have potential. FWIW, not sure this would be the same type of product, but I had an old wooden schooner for a short time. Th previous owner had coated the hull with "septic tank coating" (not really sure what it was). The boat was coated about 5 years before I got it. I had it 3 months, and he bought it back, then resold it. It sat for another 2 or 3 years, and was finally hauled off to be crushed. When they hauled it, the bottom had very little hard growth, and the wood showed no rot under the coating. If this is a similar product, I woudl say it is a good option.

Interesting product. 362 Eurs per gal, replace every year, No testing in Bahamas or like areas.

Sounds almost like the boat wax. I would like to see more testing in warmer waters and a longer life.
