Which bottom Paint?

This is for a factory new Catalina 36 which will be kept in Long Island Sound (salt water) and hauled out for winter storage. The bottom has never been painted.
The contractor is offering a choice of 2 or 3 coats. Also choice of Petit Ultima SR or Four Season Hydracoat.
Any advise would be greatly appreciated!

Which bottom Paint?

I can''t say with any certainty whether the Hrdracoat will work for your location, I plan to use it in the Great Lakes this year. I wonder if it''ll work on my windjammer, it''s not a "factory new Catalina 36"! I am curious though does the length and manufacturer affect the paintís performance?

Prior to this year, I used the Woolsey Neptune II water based ablative and had very good results, very little slim build up and no zebra mussels. The slewing aspect virtually eliminates the build up problem of hard paints. This paint is so easy to use I never understood why it wasn''t more popular with the cruisers, it can be thinned with tap water and cleanup is a snapple.
