It is mainly slime, though at that stage in 2015 we did get the big build up of weed around the saildrive.  More recently I have only been seeing slime but I do get Hobo lifted and cleaned mid-season now which makes a big difference.

Hi,
I use International Trilux 33:  on the Saildrive leg, the folding propellor,  the top 3" of the rudder and an area of the hull around the rudder stock 6" diameter. This is to avoid any chance of copper based antifouling [Hempels Tiger extra] causing corrosion on the Aluminium of the saildrive or the rudder stock.
I clean hull and apply one coat of antifouling twice a year.
The Trilux areas never show as much slime as the rest of hull.
Trilux is very expensive but one 375 ml can has lasted 6 anti-foulings [3 yrs sailing]
Yacht based in river Medina, sails Solent, and this year sailed slowly [4 months] round GB anti-clockwise.
