Seahawk is widely sold and used in the Caribe with good results. I would still opt for Petit Trinidad SR for ultimate protection...but the difference in price may not be worth it to you depending on how your boat is used and how often you haul.

Anyone ever hear of "Super KL" bottom paint? The yard I am at currently is recommending this for the West Coast and offshore sailing.

Never heard of it before. A little Googling indicates it is apparently an Interlux product (which is good) but I can't find it on the company web site (which is bad). I prefer recommending well-known, well-tested products.

It is not unhead of for a yard to get a good deal on a few pallets of paint that isn't selling well and then, of course, the yard pushes that product. Just sayin'.

I have an epoxy based paint on the hull now, and they asked what kind of sailing I planned to do during the next 2 years, and this was recommended by them. It isn't part of their standard "Bottom Paint" standard pricing offer, which might suggest they don't have pallets of it. They figure I will need 2 gallons to do the job. This paint is supposedly geared for "Mostly Sailing" in warm water climates and not for "Mostly tied to the dock" sailing. We plan to go to Mexico and south sometime in the next year, and that is what drove them recommending the Super KL paint.

Bottom Paint

Super KL is a better known Interlux paint (I forget which) that has been reformulated with a biocide to make it better resist algae growth. Or so says the yard where I purchased mine.
