Thanks for the suggestions. I noticed at the Pettit website that they also make two other paints that can stay out of the water for long periods without loosing effectiveness: Hydrocoat (water based) and Horizons. Both are ablative. Vivid is a hard finish and I like that. That is the one I think I would use if I were going to keep the boat...since I am selling it, I can't decide which would be best...I'll have the yards give me a quote both ways (not going to do it myself) and the difference in paint cost may become a less significant issue.
