Don't overthink this.

I used Petit's Trinidad black in the Caribbean for 11 years, and have had it on my boat for over 20 years. It works beautifully, has the highest copper content of any bottom paint, and is available almost everywhere.

You should plan a haulout at least once every two years.

For those wishing to Google “Trinidad”; it’s manufactured by “Pettit” (NOT Petit) .
