Ablative bottom paint makes sense if you are going to store her in the water, but think twice about painting above the waterline. Gelcoat is pretty amazing stuff and can often be brought back to life with a polish and wax job. Topside painting is expensive, difficult to repair when (not IF) damaged, and will do nothing to improve the comfort or performance of your boat. If you must paint, wait until you have sailed a season first and have learned how your craft handles. You will be less likely to bounce of a dock and mess up hours of hard work painting the hull. One of the those "don't ask me how I know" statements.

I was thinking the same thing baboon. From that picture the gelcoat doesn't look all that bad. I'd be surprised if it couldn't be made to shine. OP might want to check out MaineSail's write ups on resuscitating gelcoat.
