HVLP or Convential paint sprayer, & other paint equipment of choice

I am starting to plan and prepare for many fall and winter projects and one is to paint the topside / hull. I have decided to take on the project myself and would like to start purchasing and planning now.

Some advice I have received is that Alwgrip does not go on well with a HVLP sprayer.
I have a good size compressor and looking to purchase a paint gun kit, perhaps a conventional sprayer Devilbiss 670GFG with two to three tips. (based on some additional advise)
Any advise on techniques, equipment and type of respirator, what paint is better (Alwgrip or Interlux), etc... and tricks of the trade... any information would be helpful to reduce the learning curve.
