You should not lose the boottop stripe or your topsides appearance will go downhill.
Do you know why the boat is sitting 3-4" below the original waterline, can that be addressed?
If not, you should first raise the boottop, it looks to me like 3-4" or so. Then repair any damage, add a barrier coat, then bottom paint. If you dont do the barrier coat, you run the likelihood of more damage occurring.
Certified...in several regards...
