Antifouling

I have a ten year old GRP sailing sloop that has the usual problem of antifouling build-up, after religiously giving her two good coats of eroding antifouling per year since new. I will be having the hull grit blasted this year and moisture readings taken. I am considering the use of Internationals VC17m thin film antifouling and would like to hear from anybody who has had any experience with this or similar products. Also may I go back to normal eroding antifouling next year if I have any problems.
Thanks in anticipation.

€ just testing!

I used another product from the same stable - VC Offshore Extra for ten years on my last boat. Worked well as an antifouling, and no problems with buildup - after ten years, the bottom was as smooth as when I started. I can recommend this product.

I would have used it on the current boat, if I hadn't decided to try Coppercoat (also working well).
