Bottom Coat

Can anyone recommend the best bottom coat for a sailboat in Hawaii? By best, I want longest lasting. It stays in the water, so wet dry is no issue.

Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of
arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid
in sideways, greasy fries in one hand, beer in the other, body
thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming "WOO HOO what a ride

High copper content

Pick one with the highest copper content you can find and hope for the best.

Maui,

Go to the INterlux or Pettit website. Type in your location, water type and they recommend their best products for that environment

You should get good results from Pettit Trinidad 75 or if you like hard paints for a smotther bottom you can try Pettit Trinidad SR or Pro. The Pro has irgarol biocide to control slime.

In SoCal where we have a lot of warm water, stagnant marinas the Trinidad SR is lasting up to 4 years to re-coat.
