Exterior Paints

Just about finished prepping the exterior of my house for paint, it's a combination of wood siding and wood shingles that were all previously painted.
Does anyone have reccomendations for a quality paint to use as well as a quality primer? The house is on the marsh so it gets a lot of abuse from salt air. Have no problem spending a few extra bucks on paint if it will help to extend the life of the paint job.

I'd had good luck with Sherwin Williams. Get an account with the discount.

Never had an issue with Benjamin Moore, its not cheap but worth it. I did my house (Hardie Plank Cement Siding) in 2007 and it looks great.

Duration by Sherwin Williams. Not cheap but really good. I used it for my trim down Cape. Looks great so far.
