New Cape Dory 25 owner- which bottom paint?

Hello everyone,

My family and I have just purchased a Cape Dory 25 in part as a result of advice on various postings on these forums. So thanks to all who guided us on purchasing this beautiful boat


I wanted to know if anyone had a suggestion on the best bottom paint for a Cape Dory 25 which will be sailed in both salt and fresh water but kept on the trailer for long periods of time. It now has an ablative paint that is old and peeling of

I did mine with Petit's Ultima red, it was a toss up between that and Trinidad.

All I know is my dive boat has some blue crap on it because my wife likes blue, and my sailboat and skiff have trinidad. The skiff is kept along side the dive boat in the marina and the trinidad kiss ass. I've never used the ultima, been using trinidad since my grandfather was buying the paint mant moons ago.
