    Neil, I think you are too optimistic. Your waterline is very low. Pilgrim being at 6000 pounds (vs 6600 on the plans) my waterline is very close to the chime.

    The problem with this approach, which I also fell prey to, is that you’ll be scrubbing stuff off from that space between the painted waterline and the chime. Remember that water moves, so your actual wetted area is considerably higher than the theoretical line floating your boat in a swimming pool!
    And Jaques is right, actually twice! Now is the time to do it. Antifouling must go to the chime, and yes your waterline is way low.
