If your boat stays in the water year round or during most or all of the
boating season, application of bottom paint is pretty much the rule. For
boats left in the water for short periods of time (that two-week summer
vacation, for example) or that are stored out of the water (trailer,
lift, dry storage facility), a good coat of wax and regular cleaning are
typically all that's needed to maintain a clean hull.
If your boat has never been bottom painted and you're mulling over the idea, make sure you understand that once bottom paint is applied, the die is cast, and that periodic bottom-paint application, cleaning, and renewal become a permanent part of the vessel's routine maintenance schedule.
