Re: bottom

The barrier coat is intended o be a continuous membrane, so a patchwork approach probably won't fly unless you're repairing damaged parts of a previous barrier. In any event the barrier should not be applied over old anti fouling, I'm afraid.

If the bottom is blister free and it's just a matter of some spot fairing and sanding, then simply cleaning, painting as jw29 suggested may be all you need for now, and go sailing.
