I am interested in putting a decent racing bottom on my 37 foot boat, now painted with Micron CSC ablative, which works fine for preventing growth where I sail (lower Chesapeake). What steps should I take re: bottom preparation this spring, and what paint change (if any) should I consider? My racing will be semi-serious, but not to the point of wet-sanding, etc. prior to races.
Thanks for any tips.
