Best antifouling?

I'm about to haul out and am looking for an alternative to the Trilux 33 antifouling I've been using on a 33m aluminium sailing yacht for the last few seasons. Any recommendations? The boat spends most of it's time in the Caribbean. Does anyone have any experience with products from the E Paint?

I've had good results with offerings from Jotun.

On a cost performance basis , Jotun is the local antifoul of choice. The ships store has 20 litre barrels of it stacked to the ceiling. Nothing wrong with Trilux33, why change ? Ive had very good results...perhaps the best, with trilux. Airless sprayed Trilux over an 80 grit sanded bottom leaves a very fast surface. Trilux is hard enough that normal waterline washing doesnt erode the paints protection. With other Fast paints like Micron, one wash and its histroy.
