The boat has stayed in the water over the winter and we have a real problem with weed and barnacle. Did we go wrong with using a cheap antifouling? Does anyone else have a bad problem this year?

Did you sail much over the winter? We found that KS stayed nice and clean all summer, but when we laid her up afloat (had to take the mast down to fix something and didn't seem worth putting it up again, but wasn't time for lift-out yet) she grew lots of weed. Water running past helps the antifoul to work.
