Ship Slime

A scientist is working on a device which will make ships slimy. The thinking goes this will radically reduce the bacteria populations which form the basis for barnacle and plant infestations that regularly cause ships to be taken into dry dock to be cleaned. It doesn't sound particularly practical to me, but if it eventually makes transport cheaper, it'll be a good thing!
