Texas bottom paint

Can anyone recommend a good bottom paint for Texas? I got a recommendation for Trinidad 75 if leaving in Florida (and it will be in Florida for some of the summer), but I didn't know if I should use something else here in Texas.

I just want to know how you are going to lift Texas up to paint it. Sounds like a big job.

Trinidad or Interlux Ultra or Micron is fine for Texas. 30 years plus experience. Cheap of either brand won't cut it.

I'll 2nd the Pettit Trinidad or Interlux Ultra, I'am getting fresh paint this year and did a lot of research before deciding. It is getting a barrier coat using Interlux Interprotect 2000 so I went with the ultra for warranty reasons. A member on here who cleans bottoms highly recommended the Trinidad and I would of followed that advice but didn't want any problems with the warranty if a problem would arise.
