Semi Gloss paint

Hi everyone.
I haven't been on the forum for quite a while. I am currently totally restoring a 1963 Hurley Silhouette. I have a quick question for ya. Does anyone think semigloss paint is better for the topsides, or just go ahead and use gloss? I am struggling to come up with a color scheme. I going to use white for the topsides, but still can't decide what color to paint the hull.
Thanks
Here are some pictures of my progress.

Topsides is the hull above the water line so I assume you are painting the deck white? A white nonskid would be perfered or you could find yourself sliding off when wet & heeling. The topsides ("hull") should be whatever your favorite color is.

My mistake.

What I meant to say, was does anyone think that it is better to use semi gloss on the deck and cockpit?I will use gloss on the hull from the waterline to the deck.

What kind of paint? I think I would use gloss for its durability and dirt resistance, maybe with some flattening agent added if the first coat was too glaring.
