My question is - do I need to apply bottom paint prior to splashing her?
Yes
Quote:
What are the problems I may encounter if I don't paint it?
Slime, Weeds, Zebra Mussels, slower sailing, staining, embarassment, confusion, dizziness, palpitations, shortness of breath, lack of libido, genetic confusion, dismemberment, decapitation, ostracism, schizophrenia, loss of liquidity...

...mind you, some of those may occur if you DO paint the bottom too...

Remember to coat your raw water intake if you have one, as the little zebra mussels like to get in there and can get sucked into the engine...
