We're on the Manatee River in the South Tampa Bay area and use Petit Ultima SR and easily go 3 years between haul-outs. We could go longer but I like to be able to inspect the bottom at no more than that interval. We have a diver give the bottom a wipe down once a month and, after 3 years, the boat comes out with very little other than a little brown slime that is easily washed off with a garden hose and a piece of old carpet.

"It is not so much for its beauty that the sea makes a claim upon men's hearts, as for that subtle something, that quality of air, that emanation from the waves, that so wonderfully renews a weary spirit."
