Hull Composition

I've been reciting the iron keel on my Cheoy Lee Clipper 42. The old coating mostly fell off on haul out. I've stripped it to bare metal, re-coated with POR-15, and filled and faired with thickened epoxy. I plan to add at least one layer of fiberglass and then more epoxy with barrier coat additive. Am I missing anything? Do I need to add anything else before covering with bottom paint? Any recommendations on applying bottom paint (spray, brush, roll, etc.)?
