Ultra is the Interlux version of Trinidad. This is a high-copper paint.

Fst - Which do you like better? Ultra or Trin?

Trinidad all the way. All things considered, it is the best anti fouling paint you can buy in this country, IMHO.

Trinidad may be a good paint in the cold waters of San Francisco, but it may not cut it in NC and I know it doesn't cut it in the tropics. Walk the docks on the weekends and talk to the owners of the boats with clean bottoms in your area.

By all means do this. I suspect that Trinidad will get high marks from knowledgeable boaters wherever you go.

I think that's probably the number one anti-fouling paint on the gulf coast. It's the one paint you can always find in any marine store down here, too.

Re: Ablative or Hard Epoxy?

I am using Trinidad (SR?) and it is neither cheap nor ablative and I find in my waters it's quite good. I now get a diver scrub once a month and THAT's what makes a difference. He's going down this week and we're off for a long cruise to the east with a fast fresh bottom!
