epoxy paint advice, please

Thanks, Big Red, for clearing up one or two misconceptions about what paint can and can''t do. I won''t paint the hull.

I''m not sure about your interesting idea of putting teflon patches on the topsides - I''ve had to rub down a fair area just above the waterline to get rid of a rash of small blisters.

How thick is an average gelcoat? I understand from a number of sources that Westerlys were given double gelcoats in the late 1970s, but I have no idea what that means in terms of actual measurements.

All the best
