I'm looking to get my boat bottom painted and have talked to 6 differant full service marinas. Everyone of them has given me a differant version of what gets done as well as the actual paint that is used. I'd sure appreciate some answers if anyone could help out here. First, this is a new, never painted hull. Does dewaxing need to be done? Is dewaxing just another name for sanding? If so what grit is used for sanding? Is a barrier coat then applied? Is a barrier coat the same as a primer coat. Last but not least, should regular hard anti-fouling paint or ablative paint bu used. This is a trailerable power boat (25 Parker). Any recommendation on paint? Thanks in advance for you help.
