roll and tip tech?

I have read a number of ways to roll and tip w/ awlgrip paint. I will try the following tech: A good approach is to roll the paint on in about a 2' x 2' square area. Roll out the paint in a big W and then re-roll the area to distribute all the paint evenly in the 2 foot square area. Roll horizontally, then tip vertically with a good unloaded 3" bristle brush.

My question is: when you move to the next 2 ft area, do you overlap on the last? if so, how much? do you tip off this area also? and, once you have the hull painted and have to move the stands, how do you blend these areas in w/ the rest of the hull?
