          Comments about Trinidad SR Antifouling Paint:

          I have used Trinidad for over 20 years on my own 40-foot boat and continue to recommend it above all others as a commercial diver doing boat bottom maintenance in Florida. I have used it in several regions, including the Northeast coast, Florida and Texas Gulf coasts. It is well worth the money, but it must be properly applied. Highly recommended!

              Comments about Trinidad SR Antifouling Paint:

              I've been using the Trinidad for about 15 years now. The only thing I add is some Cayane Pepper when I mix the paint. I've been in three marinas with 2 different boats and had no problem with this paint. Other boats around me have been pulled 2 and 3 times a season with a ton of slime and Barnicles and when I come out at the end of the season my bottom is clean.A couple of years I stayed in year round and still had nothing on the bottom.

                  I have had two boats and have used the Trinidad SR on both. I am now on my third year with the last bottom painting. Boat is kept in a canal that doesn't get a lot of water movement and does a great job at controlling slime and growth. Best hard bottom paint.

                    Though expensive, the high cuprous oxide content of Trinidad does the job in very warm waters. It will discolor when the boat is left on the dock.

                    Comments about Pettit Paints Trinidad SR Antifouling Paint:

                    In the summer of 1999 I hauled my 30' sailboat and repainted the bottom. No one seemed certain how effective the new SR formula of Trinidad was in preventing slime, and at $20/gal. extra, I had some doubts. No longer. Accustomed to having the bottom cleaned every other week, I closely watched it for six months. Finally, feeling guilty, I paid a diver to clean it. He reported back that it was already clean. It has been almost a year now, and the bottom is still free of both hard growth, and more surprisingly, free of slime.

                    from Tallahassee, FL, USA

                    Comments about Pettit Paints Trinidad SR Antifouling Paint:

                    As an avid power and sail boater for more than 30 years in Florida, I have never found a bottom paint that lasts as long or works as well as Petit Trinidad SR in high-fouling waters. The SR" factor is new and definitely aids in prevention of slime between haul-outs, but smells awful. Even with the smell, I have not found ANY product that works better for as long, and an advantage of this product is that you can pressure wash and touch up between bottom jobs, and actually go for two full seasons before repainting. In the high-fouling areas of Florida, this is almost unheard of! This is a GREAT product that could only be better if the cleanup were easier."
