The hull  was painted with 2 coats of Interlux 2-part Epoxy Primer, and 2 coats of topside paint. I tried to tape-off and paint the waterline and a dark blue bottom paint, but then decided to leave the entire hull white. I plan to dry-sail the boat, and was also not sure about the weight distribution, and if the actual waterline would come out exactly where the plans indicate. I think I always can paint a different color bottom later.
