An end to blacking...?

I've just read this post on Mother Nature Network and was wondering whether it might be of use on inland waterways... not that we have barnacles as such (at least not on the boat) but it might stop the weed and mean that boats won't need blacking every couple of years... not sure what it'd do for rust though it might mean the end of anodes. I've heard of odd things being done to hulls like using a tiny amount of washing-up liquid on fenders to stop 'em rubbing on the hull but this would be well cool.

What sort of slime would be best though?
