Hey all I have decided to refinish my boat before it goes into the water. I have got a list of products from jamestown ditributers. All Total boat products. I am going to strip and bleach it after sanding I am going to put total boat penetrating epox on it first as a primer sealer. Then a total boat ablative antifowling bottom paint with a high gloss top paint above the spray rail. then varnish the top side. any objections should I change anything.

Tyler,

Unless you plan on having the boat in the water all season, I see no reason to use anti-fowling paint on the hull. A good coat of marine gloss paint will be fine.
If the boat sets in water everyday then spend the money on anti-fowling paint other wise it is not worth it.

Good Luck,

Phill
