Topsides going from 'White' to flag blue

I am going to paint my topsides this spring (if it ever gets warm enough). I am going to use flag blue Interlux brightsides. I used Interlux Perfection on the deck, and had trouble if the conditions were not perfect. Anyway, my question is, how perfect does the prep need to be? My Bristol 27 has very fair sides due to the thick hull. There are some scratches I will repair. O/w, am I crazy to go to a dark color in a DIY (roll and tip) paint job?
