Caribbean AF?

We'll be taking our boat into warmer/saltier climes this Fall/Winter and have thus far used Micron Extra with satisfaction in the Chespeake Bay for the last five years (three years on our first paint job that we did ourselves and currently heading towards a third year on the current yard-applied job). We have Trilux 33 on the aluminum sail drives.
The yard we are scheduled to use this Fall has recommended Pettit's Ultimate SR-60 for the hulls and I'm currently planning on doing the saildrives with either Trilux 33 or some other updated version for aluminum.

For those sailing in the Caribbean now, what bottom paint do you recommend for the hulls and saildrives?
