It really depends on what kind of paint you used, how well you prepped the hull and how good you were about repairing any scratches or damage to the paint.

To give you an idea of what the difference can be, look at some commercial fishing trawlers... most are steel hulled, and often the front half looks almost pristine and newly painted, and the rear half looks like a totally different boat, with big rusting patches and such. That's because dragging the fishing gear over the side damages the paint job and the steel hulls rust much faster in the rear end of the boat where the gear comes on and off.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
