I guess I have run into a few first-time boat owners that think anything you put on the underside of a boat is "bottom paint". I've seen more than one person ask what brand/type "bottom paint" will help prevent blisters on a new boat.

I think it's pretty clear that JMN412 doesn't know what kind of "paint" he is sanding off. Asking if he is sanding down to barrier or gelcoat will go a long way in helping us give good advice. Do you think he knows the difference?

Perhaps not. But suggesting that an epoxy barrier coat also be called "bottom paint" is not going to enlighten him.

Re: First time bottom painting

The paint itself will likely have lots of nasty fumes. This isn't latex house paint your dealing with here. All the information about it should be on the can. You need something with an organic vapor filter. A dust mask doesn't have that and won't do you a bit of good.

They sell several different masks that their 6001 organic vapor cartridges go onto. Some are cheaper than the 7500 masks like I posted and some are more expensive full face masks. I found this stuff to be rather pricey at hardware stores and bought it from an ebay seller. Something this:
3M Dual Cartridge Respirator Assembly,Organic Vapor/P95 Large #7193 | eBay
or this:
3M 5203 DUAL CARTRIDGE HALF-FACE RESPIRATOR MEDIUM Organic Vapor - Acid Gas NEW | eBay

I know for certain that I am sanding down another layer of antifouling paint. I have the old paint can, and it is a pettit paint. But I am planning to use the West Marine CPP to paint over it.

You might find this helpful, but I think some are optimistic.
