Bottom Repairs

I have a 1975 Rhodes 22, that will stay in the water (salt water) all of the time when finished.
Bottom paint is chipping off down to the fiberglass; I can see a few spots that have been patched in the past. No leaks that I am aware of (it holds water quite well after some rain ) what would be the best methods to refurbish the bottom of this boat. Of course some sanding will need to be done, but should I sand it all down to the glass or just get the loose stuff off (most of it is chipping off). After sanded should I cover the bottom with epoxy followed by gelcoat and then anti fouling paint? Should I do it in that order? Give me a rundown of what you would do and how you would do it please.
