Steel trawler paint

So for those of you with steel trawlers, what's your paint of choice? I know on most of the commercial vessels I've sailed on, 2 part international paint was used on the exterior and 1 part on the interior. What else does everyone use? The tug I'm on now uses 1 part PSX or Amercoat, anyone have experience with them?

Check out a download on the Interlux site.

They have good info for all surfaces, primers, number of coats ect. Of course all their info is specifically for their products but most of the info is more or less transferable.

Seahorse Marine uses Jotun on all its steel hulled vessels.

+1 for international commercial epoxy; I used the epoxy tar on my steel hull and the 3 layers of undercoat and 2 top coats on the superstructure over 17 years ago. Still going strong, but I'm on an inland river mooring. The finish has worn thin in places, but no peeling or flaking .
