Just repainted my topsides and part of the hull with Rustolium Top Side (single part) paint. Very happy with it so far, let's see how long it lasts. $10 a quart, $20 dollars for the primer. Found it at Lowe's and I think ACE hardware can order it. Limited color palate, but they certainly have White, Navy Blue and Red! In Don Casey's Book "Sailboat Maintenance" he suggests that it's not worth painting hulls with single part paint. He basis this on durability, and ease of application due to lack of obstacles on hulls (unlike decks). If I find I have to repaint the hull every year, I'll be agreeing with him! He also goes into detail regarding Gel Coat repair. Great book IMO.
