Recommend an Ablative bottom paint for FL???

I was looking at Pettit Ultima SR 60 vs Micron 66. I have also gotten a few thumbs up for West Marines PCA Gold. Any others recommended lately? Any advice?

Here's my facts....

She will be in the water ALL THE TIME. No trailering or extended visits on the hard.

Mostly Saltwater. Occationally brackish.

She's a cat so I will have higher speeds ( ) so harder ablatives are OK.

I have previously used Trinidad SR that worked VERY WELL but I am sick of the build up of hard paint. She is getting a fresh sodablasted bottom so I will be changing to ablative.

I DON'T want to have to haul her every 1-2 years. So, an ablative that is good for a few seasons would be great.

Any thoughts would be appreciated.
