Re: Advice on Best Antifoul Paint that Holds Up -- In & Out of Salt Water

IMHO, and it's not worth much in any economy;

For multi season, Interlux Extra. It may be very expensive, but it will last a long time and after a year and a half in the water and a power wash you won't need to do much prep work to apply a new coat. (New England and a couple of bottom cleanings to keep up with the growth)

The less expensive West Marine brand that has similar properties works well also. However, you will have to do more prep work to repaint. Not a bad trade off if you don't mind spending less and doing a little more labor.
