Bottom paint

My new to me sailboat looks like this on the bottom.



I have already started the sanding. I planned to repaint the barrier coat. Is there any reason to do the antifouling paint as well? I have no plans to leave it in the water. It will be put in for a day then trailered home with perhaps an occasional overnight camping trip to an island...

Also, am I just being anal thinking I should drop this swing keel and paint it too? If I do, what sort of paint should I use. It is an iron/steel keel.
