You might want to look at this photo.
The answer about coppercoat effectiveness depends on many factors. One factor is the location and environment. Another is the required maintenance of coppercoat. I know many people who would judge coppercoat as a failure because it requires cleaning and scraping. If you want antifouling to do its job without your help and your location is prone to fouling, you probably don't want coppercoat.
The owner of the cat in the above comparison photo did not like his new coppercoat bottom. That is BeBe, SM387 in the photo comparison. Both boats had antifouling applied in about the same place and the same time and both had about the same sea miles.
The people I know that like coppercoat would be satisfied with the performance in the photo and would have already scraped the hull once or twice.
I believe the biggest variables in whether Coppercoat will perform well is you and your expectations.
