Sea Hawk seems OK on Long Island in the summer (actually Mid April to Late November, after Thanksgiving). This summer actually set temperature records for number of days above 80 and above 90 degrees F.

No barnacles and everything comes off with a power wash, but I can't help you as far as warmer climates.

Petit trinidad has a very high copper content, but I'd ask the locals what's been working for them.
