I have a 1973 Morgan Ketch that is 41'3" x 13'10" w/4'3" draft. I'm about 100 miles north of you and in this area I would recommend 2 gallons of Petit Trinidad 75 for the bottom rolled on with no additives. I wax and buff my original freeboard and I've used Interlux topside for my non-skid w/ quartz sand added and Petit 2-part "perfection" for the deck that is not non-skid.

This is how I came out last after four years in the water with my "trinidad75" ,-lots of cruising from Maine to the Bahamas and a light scrub in the water twice a year.

I had the yard do this job (Flemming Island Marina, Orange Park, Fl) bottom paint, repaint name on transom, replace cutlass bearing & zinc, buff & wax freeboard for a total of $2,354.63

'take care and joy, Aythya crew
