Bottom Paint PNW

I'm going up on the hard on Friday and am looking for ideas on bottom paint. The PO had a blister peel done, epoxy barrier coats and 2 coats of Petit Trinidad done, January 2013, prior to our purchase. We are freshwater moored in a slough on the Fraser River, light current. I suspect that fouling will be minimal, as we don't normally bring the boat into the ocean until after the barnacle "bloom" is over. Should I go with a hard paint or ablative? Note that Petit Trinidad is unavailable in Canada and I believe it is illegal for me to bring it into the country.

I have always like InterLux. Give them a call and they will ask you some questions about your setup and location. They will then givea recommendation.

I use Hempel Olympic. Forget which number, 86950 likely. Hempel is a Danish paint which competes with International Paint in the shipping market, does not advertise much in the recreational market. I go 3 years easily. I haul for other reasons. Not paint.

Readily available in the lower mainland. Canadian office is in Surrey.

Comes in muddy red and black. Haven't seen any other colors, if that is an issue.
