Not sure which 'you' you are referring to Tom but in essence yes, or at least every 18 months but its more to do with anodes than paint.

We've hauled Raven every year since we bought but I'm stretching it to 18 months this time cos I want to change the time of year we haul. Anodes were still good when I had a diver give us a rub down late last year.
