the drive shaft seals may not be 100%
the hull may suffer from osmosis (blistering)
if however you do antifoul your boat i would always go for a teflon type so as not to loose too much top end.
if you did have a problem (ie your boat sank) you would be hard pressed to get a warranty claim or insuarnce payout if the owners manual says not to do it.
but hey this is just my opinion - i do know some owners have left their boats on the water so you may wish to speak to them aswell.

You have become quite the DOO-ologist i see.....
also be aware that if its salt water you are leaving the boat in, your sacrificail anodes are small and probably wouldnt last a season in the water, and once they are gone............big problems with corrosion.

DON'T DO IT!!!!!!!!
Thumper is spot on. Once your sacrificial anodes are gone, you're asking for trouble. Additionally, since the EPA out-lawed the use of lead in bottom paint, it hasn't been worth a damn since. Oh, it will keep your hull relatively micro-organism clean, but not for very long. My advice...........
DON'T DO IT!!!!!!!!!!
