Using a vibration sensor SoC with custom neural nets loaded for the specific surface it is paired to, you can turn a object/surface into a touchscreen of sorts. Notable is the NN is pretrained and loaded onto the SoC, so touch detection is done offline.

A comparison of the antifouling performance of air plasma spray (APS) ceramic and high velocity oxygen fuel (HVOF) coatings for use in marine hydraulic applications: Biofouling: Vol 34, No 5
Still kinda expensive to do a whole ship hull, but this basically uses a supersonic flamethrower to treat a metal surface with a carbide layer for biofouling protection, cuts fouling by 50% or more.

Therapeutic luminal coating of the intestine | Nature Materials
Similar to gastric bypass surgery remove a segment of GI tract, or similar tubular net like structures inserted after the stomach, they effectively block nutrient absorption. So, the idea here is, make a pill that can temporarily coat the GI tract to block nutrient uptake. No need for heavy surgery and no risk of a mesh tube getting dislodged, but you need to take the pill regularly.

Analysis of a Lunar Sling Launcher
Geoffrey Landis PDF on a lunar surface sling launch system, feasibility, and performance. looks doable and can go places. If you can fire the sling towards a lunar frozen orbit (86 degrees) or similar, you could do fairly regular launches. Being a tether based sling makes it easier to pack up/deploy compared to a fixed mass driver complex. Wonder how well you could catch with one too...
