Experiences Akzo-Nobels Relest Marine 522 antifouling range in warm waters?


horray an antifouling thread Almost as good as anchors, guns and mono vs. multi.

Please keep this focused on how well the mentioned product is working and please do not enter into the typical ecological debate. Thank you.

The boat is doing speeds around 5-8kn, intermittently at anchor for several weeks, occasionally drying out.
Usage is in warm to tropical warm waters.

We are looking to buy antifouling and I recently found Akzo-Nobels Relest Marine 522 range.
Has anyone here used it successfully in warm waters like the Med and Caribbean?

What is the difference between:

Relest Marine 522 Longlife


Relest Marine 522 Ecoship

I do have the impression Ecoship is better suited to warm waters. Not sure.

Is it possible to apply Relest during a tide cycle?
Possibly several layers in consecutive tidal cycles?

Old paint is still a flawless, one well-holding layer of Hempel Pro.
Can Relest be applied directly onto that?

Appreciate info from folks who have actually used this stuff.
