In II, will a prime summer California Coastal deposit pull a prime Marriott?

I would consider depositing my week 30 Carlsbad Seapointe week into II if I could pull a Marriott in Hawaii.
How can I figure out the trading power of my Seapointe week in II?

Are you looking for something in Hawaii bigger than a studio (studios often don't have Marriott priority) and when were you looking to travel in Hawaii? Are you looking for a specific Marriott or anything will do?

Can you deposit Seapointe into II? I didn't think so but would be thrilled to have that option.

If not then consider GPX. Hanalei Bay Resort (Kauai) is awesome, and for the time being, I see Diamond properties (Kaanapali Beach Club) on GPX. I can't remember if someone posted that the affiliation would be ending but I feel like I heard it somewhere. The only bad thing about GPX is the resort fees, but ready access to inventory is a nice perk.

I used to deposit a prime 2 BR East coast summer beach week into II and could only pull prime M studios. I got beat out by M owners with preference.

I am not totally particular about which Marriott. I would like to go in July, but I realize that Hawaii is a difficult trade Regardless.
if I’m going to relinquish my prime coastal CA, I want to get a top tier trade.
I’ve tried using interval international with a Welk week, and I got junk for trade value. The best exchange was back into Welk.

Hmmm. Coastal CA for Marriott Hawaii?
I don't think so.
I own Marriott Newport Beach, 2 bedroom and it's never a sure thing to pull Hawaii.

Seapointe isn't in the Interval resort directory. We have to use RCI, GPX, or SFX.

It has not always been like this. in principle, shouldn’t I be able to choose whIch company I want to exchange with? Oh well.
I will just rent it.

Somehow it's controlled by the management company. I would love to have the Grand Pacific properties in II. I keep suggesting it but so far it hasn't happened.

RCI/II deposit options are controlled by developer/management. I have a 3 BR HHI 4th of July week that I can only trade with RCI, not II, and RCI gives low TPUs, despite being gold crown. It's 5* with II and if you bought a newer Flex-package week from the developer, you can trade with II, but they don't allow resale buyers of fixed weeks to use II, only the original RCI.
Luckily, I can transfer (for now) over to RCI points and get a decent value, as I'm too lazy to try to rent it out.

It seems with weeks resorts, the hoa or developer has to enter into an agreement with rci or II. If they later decide to go to the other as their primary external exchange that they advertise and encourage their members to use, the earlier agreement allowing exchange with the other company doesn't just go away.

There are points memberships and trust based memberships that may not allow deposits with the non preferred company even when an old agreement may exist.
