Bottom paint for trailer sailor

My 1974 23'' Paceship needs bottom paint. If I am planning on keeping her in the water, what kind of paint should I use and approx. what should I expect to pay? Any advice would be appreciated.

General wisdom for bottom paint seems to be to use what works for your neighbor. Stuff that people swear by for a whole season in Boston may only last a week in Tampa, and vice versa. Expect to pay about $100 a gallon for reasonably decent anti-fouling paint. You may only need a half gallon. Follow the directions closely.
