Paint for boot stripe?

My boot stripe was repainted at least once by previous owners and was badly chipped. I've sanded it and want to paint it fresh.

Any recommendations on what paint to use? It's a 19-ft Scot, so I won't need a whole lot.

Thanks for any help!

Kurt

How about a quart of Interlux Brightsides? It's economical, fairly durable and easy to apply.

Also, IFRC, someone makes a paint specifically for boot/cove stripes. Though I'm not sure it would be much different from any above-the-waterline hull paint.

bootstripe

We use bottompaint for our bootstripe as it is commonly in the water and is easier to clean, this is the break line to our topside paint and we dont like having to use agressive measures to keep the topside paint clean.
This is just my opinion

Pick your color of top side paint. Add a little thinner, use the best brush you can afford, use several very thin coats and it will be smooth. Use a cheep brush and thick paint and you will see the brush marks from the far dock.
