proper bottom paint for PacNW

Greetings,

Can anybody recommend the "right" bottom paint for the waters of Puget Sound? I have a 20 foot pocket cruiser that is in need of a haulout and this will be my first bottom job. Thanks much!

a hard anti fowling paint. I just used petit premium antifowling paint. but any band will do. i am in Vancouver and saw growth on the bottom in salt water after just a week but it all cleans off after moving the boat

I have used Pettit Trinidad (High copper content) in Puget Sound for years, getting two years between paint jobs. However, I bought a newer boat last year which had two years on ablative paint. When hauled for the survey, it was in quite good condition. I had it repainted with ablative and expect much more than two years.
