We're in the warm waters of FL and have been using Trinidad SR over our 2000e for years. No issues, and as noted prep and application is everything. With that said, a few years back we had an Irwin we sailed in San Francisco area and an ol salt recommended a commercial barrier product from Ameron. Its was used on the mega yachts at the time. It was less then $40 a gallon and went on almost like tar...then we followed up with Trinidad. He was right, it was cheap, thick and I don't think anything would ever get through it. It worked fine, no blisters, etc for years. I note this in event someone is on a tight budget and doesn't want to over pay for the hyped up marketing on traditional boat store products. But like I said, we've had no probs with the 2000 with Trindad SR.....except the $

Some people claim that 2000E has problems with "Orange peeling", which I have seen on boats around the yard. Does that significantly effect performance at all? My boat is a heavy displacement cutter, so I'm not terribly worried about performance, but if I loose a half knot I wouldn't be happy.

Last I looked, you can do the same with the Pettit product as well, I think white & grey are available?

I doubt the barrier coat would affect your boat speed at all, especially given that you're a heavy displacement cutter design.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

He was discussing west systems vs. Interprotect... Pettit wasn't even a contender... read his post.

Any other arguments for one or the other?
The Pettit & Interlux barrier products are pretty much the same I think so I would probably just go with the less expensive one. The link I provided above I am using Pettit and found it to be easy to work with and has held up fine since application a few years ago now.

Sailingdog...In fact you yourself say something very similar here: Barrier Coat Petit vs Interlux
