The results you get will vary with location.
Here in the Med we use Trilux33 with 2 coats and 3 for the waterline and leading edges.
We hall out every 2 years and reapply. The whole time is at anchor
with long passages every week or two. At the end of 2 years there are no barnacles
but some soft growth.
My experience is that Trilux33 is considerably better than the former Trilux. Slightly worse than the copper based antifoulings (I would never use these on aluminium). TBT is much better than any of the above
